Spiders will eat stink bugs, but there is no American predator that relies on them as their main food source, Leskey said.

In 2010, it was like something out of a horror film: my entire south facing rear wall was literally covered with stinkbugs. I sprayed them down with a mixture of water and dish soap, which killed a lot of them, but they still infested my house over winter.

2011 wasn't as bad for stinkbugs, but I did notice the number of spiders in my house had gone up dramatically.

This winter, I haven't seen any live stinkbugs. I'm beginning to think that the spiders are picking them all off.

So, yay spiders!

We don't have a stink bug problem, the scorpions eat 'em.

So stinkbugs stink, but dog poop made of stinkbugs doesn't?

What a country!

Adding burned rubber and dirty socks to cilantro seems redundant and pointless.

Praying Mantii will dispatch them quickly as well.

I have a pathological fear of praying manti. Especially the 6 inch white ones that live in New Guinea.

Dramatically less stinkbugs this year than last. Maybe they roasted in July.

You can make a great trap for these out of a two-liter soda bottle and a cheap LED light. Cut the neck off the bottle, put LED at the bottom, re-secure neck with the top facing the bottom of the bottle.

The bugs'll crawl in overnight, and can't get back out. I've woken to bottles 1/3 filled, but now rarely see more than one or two per day.

I'd love to blow one of those bottles up with an M-80!

Ok, it might just be worth buying a scorprion now. Damn thing will get so overfed it's going to need a mobility scooter.

I killed one in my house a few weeks ago. It smelled like fresh cut grass but not in a good way.

Then they'll bring in gorillas to eat the wasps. But those will freeze to death in the winter, so that's OK.

I have neighbors that complain about stink bugs, I do not. The only difference between them and me? I have 20 bug warriors on patrol.

LOL I'm in the city and our neighborbood has a flock of over 20 guineas which periodically come through and eat everything. They're weird and cute. And noisy a lot of the time.

No kidding... cilantro + anything tastes like cilantro. Way to ruin a perfectly good dirty sock.

Awww HELL noes!

Think harder, guys.

Just never throw a lit firecracker near them. They all think it is a bug and fight over it. My intention was to scare the chickens. The effect was a blown off beak from the proud chicken that ended up the 'winner'. 1979 will go down in my memory forever as the year I couldn't sit down for a week after getting my a$$ whipped with a vengeance for farking with the egg supply in addition to a charge of general dumba$$ syndrome. Been trying to do things since then to avoid hell.
 
2012-01-09 03:41:25 PM  
Oh... and I know they aren't chickens, but assume they would behave in a similar way. With the exception of that one on the left that looks like a Road Island Red genetic wonder.

Chinese needle snakes, gorillas, freeze to death. Got it.

A stink bug can ruin a whole mouthful of wild raspberries.

My garden the last two years has been ruined by stink bugs and blight. I am so discouraged from putting in all the effort and money again this year even though gardening is something I love doing. There is nothing worse than reaching deep into a tomato plant that is covered with stink bugs. I also had a lot of white aphids this year too, I had to use a lot of pesticides and it didn't even work.

2010 stink bugs would cover half my house, every screen had dozens on them. I caught my 2yo playing with a live one inside of her doll house. yuck yuck yuck.
