    The big swarm coming this year will only be found as far down as NC, but they're found all over the east coast. I see or hear them almost every year here.


    I just started seeing stink bugs here for the first time last year. One landed on me outside my work and I swatted it away, went inside, and spent the next hour trying to figure out what the hell that smell was
     

  2. Ewww and what state do you live in? They are everywhere here. My old place was infested with them. I had to learn all kinds of things to get rid of them (dawn dish detergent plus bleach plus water keeps them off your doors and windows, etc) and yes, god, ive smelled them too many times... try smelling one STRONG and looking around for 5 mins not being able to find it until you finally for some reason look on your armpit and there it is. UGH.

    I HATE THESE BUGS!!! They are loud too and fly at you when you're just sitting on the couch. They are evil here...always tryin to get inside.

    *deep breathe* I don't wish these bugs on anyone.
    Even my cats (well, I only have one cat left but I had three at one time that ran into them) hate them and wont mess with them. They killed one once and learned...

  4. I almost couldn't watch that.

    (and certainly I wouldn't have been there filming it. I'da been in the next room getting myself outta a panic attack and finding a coffee canister and working up the courage to go trap the fucker in it)

    I live in SC. Where are you? edit: nevermind, it clearly says you live in PA. haha that sounds intense, they're not that bad here. I see one or two every few days but I haven't seen any inside yet.

    We have a problem with earwigs...

    what you mean, like this??,.. :p
     

  9. ew yea we have earwigs here too but I cant say a lot of them. I just see one or two a year when I sweep under the fridge.
    we get those long (many) legged bugs tho.. yuck..whatever you wanna call them cenipedes, millipedes..idk

    oh and the stinkbugs... once you start seeing them I can almost guarantee there will before too long be many more, as they have no natural predator's.
     

  10. Right on. Pretty much.

    We don't ever have swarms of them here. But they do get loud. We have the black ones with the tuxedos.

    Here's a translation (in case you were wondering what all the noise is about):

    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ, ZT, ZT, ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. ZT, ZT, ZT, ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZT..

    Means: "I'm horny!" :D

    Crabs, shrimp, and lobsters are also Arthropods (bugs).

    Pass me the tartar sauce.
     

  16. Ew yea I heard on... was the the daily show or colbert report? Im not sure which one but yea, i heard about the UN basically saying we should eat bugs and I will say that, yea, bugs can provide lots of protein and nutrition but I'll be damned if anyone can get me to eat a stinkbug!!

    They have a strong grip. One landed on my shirt one time.

    I like 'em, but I wouldn't eat one. They're too cool to eat.

    Something about those eyes, lol.
     
  19. See, THAT is ugly.
