Stink Bugs

Post  Beau on 12/22/2012, 10:09 am

Wea re experiencing a high number of stink bugs in the Pensacola area. They have wiped out my remaining tomatoes. I want to avoid this problem for next year. Does anyone have a suggestion?

I suggest contacting your local Cooperative Extension Service Agricultural Agent for the most recent recommendations to battle this pest in your area.

Thanks camprn. I will see if they have any organic suggestions. My husband did purchase a hand held vacum with a longer wand design. It works well on the nemps, but not the adults.

I keep a jar of rubbing alcohol out in my space, whenever I see one I use the lid to slap the stinker down in the alcohol and put the lid back on. I have never found anything that will actually run them off or kill them outright except chemicals....

Thank goodness the spiders eat them so we don't have to:

"I had to ask: Had he ever tasted one?

“I have,” he said. “The worst bug I ever tasted. I spat it out in five seconds and my tongue went numb.” Dr. Raupp, it should be explained, spends a lot of his time in the field, chasing bugs — and eating them, too. He likes the way they taste, and he thinks they could be a solution to world hunger. “Cicadas are mighty good eating,” he said. “So are termites, grasshoppers, crickets and mealworms. Bugs make up an important part of the diet in many cultures around the world. One way around the protein shortage is to consume insects rather than cows.”
