One Sign of Spring Central New Yorker’s Don’t Like Stink Bugs
Apparently, some don't realize spring hasn't sprung in Central New York. Unfortunately, it's Stink Bugs.And they may be just as cranky as the rest of us about the weather. Have you seen them? Here's how to get rid of them.
Like many insects, Stink Bugs emerge from hibernation in the spring. They are mostly harmless in that they eat fruit and vegetable crops and as a rule won't damage your home. True to their name, they will stink up the joint if squashed or put into panic mode. There are two ways to get rid of them.
- A vacuum cleaner - that's right just suck them up and drop them off outdoors.
- A light trap - fill a pan with soap and water, then shine a light on it. They scurry in and drowned.
