Eeeby-Jeebies

I'm guessing it's all the rain we've had lately but the stink bugs are out in force the last couple of days! Let me make this perfectly clear - I HATE STINK BUGS!!!! They totally creep me out. I know they're harmless but there is something about them and their creepy little armored bodies that totally gives me the willies. I can be sitting on the couch minding my own business and all of a sudden out of nowhere comes a stink bug whizzing past my head. I sucked up about 5 of 'em into my vacuum and I know there's one I missed. I saw him by the motion detector a minute ago but now I don't know where he went. I'm sure I look ridiculous walking around my house with the vacuum attachment as long as I can make it saying in my sing-song voice, "ok, little creepy bug, where did you go?...I know you're in here..." And, even though I'm sitting momentarily at the computer, don't think for a minute that I'm not totally looking around every few seconds making sure it's not anywhere near me.

That picture above? There were actually 5 on that window, 3 on the bathroom window, 1 on the kitchen window, 2 on the living room window and...eeeewww there's the one I tried to get before and I don't think I can reach him; he's too high and I'm out of attachments. Gross.

Later.

I am familiar with June bugs but not stink bugs. What are they? Do they live up to their name by stinking? Why did God create them anyway?

I talked to a friend and she said at this time of year the stink bugs come to the sunny side (south side) of your home because they are looking for warmth. It's getting colder out there and the stink bugs don't like it. Kelly
