A listing of multiple humorous and helpful posting about stinkbugs and how to defeat them in the current war against them.

Stinkbug Invasion Party Planning

Today’s sunshine has brought out a greater number of the enemy than has been seen in many months. Once again, windows are covered with stinkbug soldiers and our patrols must be increased to combat their numbers. And the most recent news from HQ is disturbing. Apparently, the invasion force is already planning a victory party. […]

Stinkbugs: The Truth is Out There

Finally, there seems to be an acceptance of much that those of us on the front lines already knew: 1. Stinkbugs are far more than a nuisance. 2. Stinkbugs are a threat of epic proportions. 3.

Stinkbug Tower of Death Success!

After waiting patiently for the perfect opportunity to deploy my newest weapon against stinkbugs, last night found the enemy airborne and vulnerable to the lure of the light.

Stinkbugs: They Are Breeding…

Despite intel reports to the contrary, the stinkbug horde encamped within the walls and crevices of my home IS breeding. I just captured a young scout – and I have seen many before whom I suspected were underage. I fear that they are not being drafted into the enemy army against their will, but are […]

They Will Dance On Our Graves

I saw this Gary Larsen Far Side Classic, and all I could think was that he had it wrong. It will be stinkbugs celebrating instead of roaches. Perhaps they will enslave the roaches to serve them. Regardless, stinkbugs clearly have a plan, and it does not involve our survival. So, we must fight back. I […]
