So there's something the Valley can be known for! Being the starting point for the US Stink Bug infestation!
Hmm, I wonder if this is the same bug I remember from back when I was a kid, if so Long Island has had them for a lot longer than 1996! We get a lot of interesting hitchhiker insects from the airports. I've always loved insects. They are so cool!

The Wheel bugs have a pungent odor too.......
I havn't been close enough to know that , but I read it. There was one on our garage door, last year. Also, I have seen two on the front window.....
One outside on the umbrella, and one on the back window. Too, too, many for my liking. I don't want to be stung by that!

Default What type of spray to use?

Will any bug spray get rid of these nasty bugs. I did not start seeing them in my home until I read this post a few days ago.
