This is at least the fourth year of the invasion, where I live. The photos are of the north side of my house, October 3 of 2009. I spent a couple of hours every day vacuuming the little blighters off everything I could reach for a few weeks there. One day, overwhelmed by their sheer numbers and near invulnerability, it dawned on me they have a great deal in common with another well-known species of aliens. So I designed the "We are the Stink Borg" graphic, and got it printed on a t-shirt as a gift for my husband.

We are wildlife lovers and just don't do poison, period. We gently escort every other bug (except ants) outside, and catching these guys is a piece of cake. But after 3 years we realized taking them outside, and hoping they wouldn't come back was, um, futile. So, now the ones inside get flushed, or squished inside a thick wad of TP and thrown away. Outside, they get vacuumed up in a shopvac, then dumped on the gravel road, doused with gas, and torched. My husband does the last part. He'll be wearing his t--shirt while he does it this year. You do what you have to to keep your sanity.

(The design is available to anyone on assorted merchandise at my Cafe Press shop:
