October Chill

October dawns with the invasion of the Stink Bugs, all crowding around windows, door frames, any structural cracks that emanate warmth. After a few weeks when we have a hard freeze, they'll go dormant but many will set up residence in our homes. Time to get out the caulking guns and wage battle against these malodorous marmorated stinkers! Can't squash 'em or you'll pay. About the only thing to do is seal the house and use the vacuum hose to capture them. Or you can make a stink bug catcher with a plastic soda bottle - here's how to make one. Good riddance!
