Stink Bugs

Do you have these awful pests at your house? We do. They are outside trying to get in. We live in a 100yr old house. Needless to say, they find their way in. They live up to their name....they stink!

It takes a careful hand to get rid of them. Sometimes I use the sweeper hose to scoop them up. But they stink, even when covered in the dirt! I also try to grab them in a piece of toilet paper, then give them a nice flush.

They try to hide in the curtains. Last year I found loads of them in the tab tops! Ellen is very good at scoping out their hiding places. I just swept up 2..... now she says she sees another one. Ugh!

On a brighter side, The Biggest Loser is on NBC tonight! I love, love, love that show!!!

We had a terrible time with stink bugs at our Lititz house. But I don't think I've ever seen any up here. They must like Lancaster County better.
