"I feel your pain! The only thing that has ever worked for me in my garden is handpicking them and dropping the little suckers into a container of Dawn/water. Actually if you can hold the container under the SB most of the time they will…"
"In Loudoun County VA we had a mini swarm a couple of weeks ago. The numbers so far are down this year but I’m still seeing them on the windows, porch etc. Just not in the huge numbers. I didn’t have a problem in my veggie garden this…"
"I haven't seen hardly any in my veggie garden this year and usually by this time they've done quite a bit of damage. They are swarming the house but much smaller numbers so far. Maybe there is a natural predator!"
"I've seen them come out of recessed lights and also around ceiling fan mounts. I would've hoped by now there would be a permanent solution to the sb problem. Does anyone know if anybody is still working on a solution or have they all given…"
"They showed up in Western Loudoun County VA yesterday. This is around the same time as last year and numbers so far are similar. Was not too bad here last year compared to previous years so I am hopeful they won't be too terrible. Have not seen…"

"Starting out this warm, sunny day in NW VA pretty active with the sb. We also had several days of rain which we really needed - added bonus that the stinkers were in hiding! Unfortunately I think we'll see a lot of…"
"I still use Demand CS every August and I still buy it from doyourownpescontol. I've seen sb in my garden for several weeks. Last week had 2 on the windows of my house! I usually spray in mid August. Haven't done it yet but definitely need…"
"So far it hasn't been nearly as bad as last year - which was beyond awful. We removed 2 Crepe Myrtles that were very close to the house so that might have something to do with it. We still have the stinkers on the house/windows, just not the…"
"Swarming here today in Loudoun County VA. Cool nights/sunny, warm days are ideal for the beasties! This used to be my favorite time of year but we can't even sit on the porch and enjoy the beautiful fall weather."
