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.
