"Yeah it's funny because they'll walk all over my garage door but never come in even tho it's a very old door with a few cracks & lots of openings to come in. They also don't come in my kitchen but walk all around the window…"
"Because they only like certain environments. Whatever you do don't squash them or let them emit their stink in any way because it just calls more to your bedroom. I pick them up with a paper towel & trash them. I've have had them…"
"Thanks for the info Cheryl I didn't know about the stink bug invitation sent out when they find an opening, interesting. I still say they're not too smart because they get in but can't find the very same spot to get back out again…"
"It's amazing right, that no matter how well we seal up they seem to find that one tiny spot to squash their little stinky bodies into & amazing that we could have lots & lots but our next door neighbor have none at all.
"Hi Pat, it's just about that time again. I haven't seen any yet here in South Jersey but I have it written down in my calendar when I saw them last year. I saw the first one on 8/31 but none this year on that date. Next date is 9/2, then…"
"Yea same for us. I sealed up all windows & still my gndson comes down & says another one got in his room.Only 2 this year tho but I don't see as many as in previous years anyway. Cooler days here in South Jersey so not many around &…"
"Pat, the conifer looks so much like a stinker that he dies too, just for looking like one. The bugs pay the cost for looking like a stinker. We, in Sicklerville So Jersey don't see too many of them, just a few each year but it's death to…"
"I saw my first stinker this year on 8/31. Early for South Jersey. Since then one got in a bedroom even tho windows are double screened, so I had to check & retape the screen some more. Picked 2 out of my front door screen, between the screen…"
"I guess I lucky I didn't see any today but there's still the rest of the week, in the 70's. They don't like my house anymore. I get less & less every fall since I double screened & use Talstar Pro heavily around all doors…"
"Oh pat, I'm glad you said that about the butterfly bushes because I wanted to plant one or two next to my house. Love the butterfly bushes but hate the stinkers, sooooo as Rosanne Rosanadana says, "never mind."
"Let me know how that works for you. Like if you actually did see spots to tape with the sunlight. I had to look under the actual AC because the small slit was part of the AC, not the window. & I said to stinkers, "Aha, that's where…"
"Yes Cheryl it does take a long time for them to die. So long that I think the Telstar Pro isn't working & spray again. Never hurts to do it again.
I have a bedroom window AC. I heavily taped it up & shoved a big towel under the AC…"
"Yea, raining here too in South Jersey but slowing down so now they'll be out tryin' ta get in. I agree I see less & less every year. Maybe in a few years they'll be gone, wishful thinking.
With the warmer weather yesterday,…"
"Was watching for the swarm here in Sicklerville South Jersey. Wasn't going to bother securing the double screens that have to be done every Sept or spraying my Talstar Pro but now that I've seen my 5th one this week I sprayed heavily today…"
