I hadn't taken a photo yet today when suddenly I heard the tell-tale loud buzzing whirr of a stink bug. I don't remember these bugs from when I was little. Truthfully, I have only been aware of them in the last few years. Why is that so? Did they not come so far north, but now they do with global warming. Or are they like the kudzu, an illegal alien immigrant that has taken over native species? Or, did I just somehow miss them lo these many years?
Whatever the reason, stink bugs are here. They have been in my house for a few years now. Once it begins to get cold they invade. At night the fly around. They aren't really that bad. They don't see, to sting or bite. And, I have never smelled anything to explain their name. Also, my dog Ahna loves to eat them. When she hears their buzz she freezes and then "gulp", they're gone.
So, stinkbugs are the new of my post. Can you figure out the old?
