"Well the worst of it should be over by the end of this week. I wonder with temperatures expected to be in the 80s this week, will they swarm and be active ?Anyone seeing them outdoors or on your windows or doors due to this record breaking very warm…"
"Warm weather is expected this week. Temperatures are expected to be high 70s. So we think the stink,bugs might swarm this week as we did not get a full frost thus week. We might need to spray again, just in case"
"Keeping lights off as much as possible is a good idea. We only turn on our lights when we need to, then turn them off as leave the room. They are attracted to light so we draw the curtains and keep the porch and yard lights off for the month of…"
"They are very active today and are on the move. They are moving quickly today because it is warm and sunny outdoors. The worst time of the day for them here is from about 2 pm until dusk. It is cooler at night so they slow down considerably…"
"I am hearing they were very active last week and this past weekend. Today, it is much cooler and cloudy and I did not see one. Those sunny and warmer days bring them out in full force. I hate to wish for an early frost, cooler temps, and rain but…"
"John, thank you !!!
We bought a bugzooka and we use it a lot. It is great for those of us who do not want to get too near to the stink bugs we are trying to capture. I also found out they will not stink unless squished. As one got on my leg, I…"
"Here in PA, we got the swarm late, around Oct 1st. That is the week of huge apple harvesting and National Apple Harvest Festival near Gettysburg PA. What is it like other states....we get swarm for six weeks and it can start Sept 15-Oct 5 and last…"
"It is so hot and humid, we need to keep our window air conditioners in until October. So we cover every space between window and ac...even we have to cover in triple layers and tons of packing tape.We find packing tape is stickier and catches some…"
"Linda, I remember reading about stinkbugs at either the Penn State or the Rutgers University websites that are studying them. They said the stinkbugs eat during the summer months and that holds them over until the following summer. So while…"
"Yes it is more like spring and summer like weather outside today. It is hard to believe it is November 3rd. I was out walking to the polls to vote today and stinkbugs were swarming in different locations.
I got home and was sure to…"
"I just saw the forecast and I am dreading next week, lots of sun and warm temperatures.
It is going to be unusually warm for the first week in November. I think we may have to re-apply
some Talstar due to the driving rain with a…"
"I am hoping the Swarm is over for now. I have not seen a Stinkie for over a week. They did return after the First Frost on some warmer sunny days. Have you all been seeing any on your house, windows, cars?
It all depends…"
"Depending on where you live, a frost is predicted for this weekend in some regions. And it is possible that the temperatures at night might dip below 30 degrees by Sunday night here in Central PA. It gets a lot better after the first…"
"We sprayed our bushes but we still have a lot. Last week was bad until Friday's thunderstorm. The temperatures were warmer last week reaching the mid to high 70s. We have been seeing fewer these past 3 to 4 days, a sudden drop…"
"Today is the worst day yet this season for the stinkies trying to get in and swarming. I was hoping this year would be better but it is worse than 2014 , we think, but it is better than 2012 and 2013.
For us, usually the worst time for…"
