Stink Bugs…Stink

It's that time of year again.  The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting cooler and the stinkbugs are getting into everything!  This is a relatively new phenomena for us here in New Jersey.  Over the last few years these little odorous bastards invade our homes by the score when the weather turns cool.  Your home can be sealed tight as a drum and they still find their way in.

Apparently they have few natural predators because of their highly effective self defense system.  The exception appears to be my golden retriever, who seems to be fond of them but that dog has never been quite right.  Dog breath is bad enough, essense of stink bug on dog breath brings things to a whole new level.

This fellow on the vice has me thinking…I wonder if trout can smell?


  1. Yeah,I never remembered stink bugs being like this when I was younger... survival of the fittest perhaps? A size 4 stink bug fly is a scary thought.

  2. I just came back from Cumberland Valley in Pa and no matter how many gas stations I stopped at to wash the windows there's still carcass bits and stink on windsheild!
