My stink-bug trap experiment



When it came to natural disasters, stink bugs were worse than Hurricane Irene for many of our vegetable gardens this summer, and we all are asking, “What can we do?”  One possibility is to use commercially available stink bug traps.  I’ve just posted a report about my two-week experiment with one such trap.  If you’re interested, CLICK HERE.

And if you didn’t read Erica Smith’s posting about stink bugs here on the Grow It Eat It blog yesterday, take a few minutes and check it out and follow the great links she’s included.  I especially enjoyed Mike Raupp’s video about how to keep the stink bugs out of your home and his “Bug of the Week” report, which includes a short video of a praying mantis eating a stink bug.

Go Mantis!
