I read that they were accidentally introduced in Eastern PA in the mid ‘90’s. Around here they appear to have no enemy and can unfortunately cause crop damage.
I have never smelled the stink but people say it is not a nice smell. I wonder if the offensive smell could be genetic; some find it offensive, some don’t. Maybe I’m one of the lucky people who genetically don’t find them offensive.
Did you know that finding the smell of a skunk unpleasant is genetic? To some they don’t smell bad at all. I didn’t inherit that gene, skunks smell pretty horrible to me.
The main room in our house that I find Stink Bugs is in our living room. I suspect that they are crawling down the chimney. I hope that they stay away from other parts of my house, particularly my bedroom.
What about you? Do you have a Stink Bug problem? Can you smell the stink?
