Yuck. We don’t have a problem with those here, but we are completely covered in stink bugs. They’re everywhere.

Yes! They are everywhere. One almost flew into my forehead one day at work and they frequently land on my keyboard. Dead ones build up in my office window too. 🙁 I know they are harmless but they are definitely distracting!

I would rather have boxelder’s than stink bugs. Everyone should apply a Home Defense spray around the outside of their foundation and outside the edging of windows (when windows and sceens are closed) – Boxelder bugs are rampant this year.

I didn’t know what boxelder bugs were so I googled them. They look horrible!! Even if they are harmless, no thanks!

They’re SO FREAKING ANNOYING! They were all over the front of my house a few days ago, then they seemed to move to concentrate on my front door. Gah! Freaking annoying. At least they’re not poisonous or biters or anything.

Ewwwww we used to have them in our back room at work (the back doors have a little space so they just crawled in) they’re gone now thank God!

I have never heard of such a thing lol. I live in a basement apartment and have been visited by a ton of cave crickets over the past few weeks though  =/

We get them horrible every year and since we live in the country it’s even worse. Not to mention some of our windows need replacing so they wiggle their way in. We spray the entire perimeter of the house so they die sooner than later. We can’t even hang out on our front porch right now though because they are so bad!!

We get them in Ohio and Michigan too.  I loathe them and am so grateful when they’re gone!
