Caught In The Act

I'm using these disgusting stink bugs, which have destroyed my tomato and gardenia plants, as the Photo-4-October word: Beatles. I couldn't believe my eyes. They were apparently glutted from gorging on my once beautiful gardenia, and were now fast asleep. Best viewed large if you have the stomach for it.
Oh...so many of them. How do you get rid of them without them stinking you up? Great capture of then.

Wow, so many of the little horrors.

Take the picture for posterity then spray, spray!

Oh yes, I think Maggiemae is right. Revenge will be sweet! :)

If I saw those critters in my polytunnel, I wouldn't stop running till I reached the next county! Poor you - such a shame about your flowers :-( Great photo, though.

at least you got a good photo from them and follow Maggiemae's suggestion

Gracious, I've never seen anything like this - hopefully you can get rid of them soon!

Oh my gosh, look at all the stink bugs. Cool capture. I've only seen a couple around here lately.

@eyesmile @http365proj @maggiemae @tremerryn @squaresparrow @hjbenson @dolphin @mittens thank you all for your comments. They are a real plague.
@eyesmile, if they get in the house I vacuum them up, and sometimes I flick them into a jar of soapy water, but there's no real getting rid of them.
@maggiemae I had read that I could kill them by spraying with hot soapy water, so after I took the pictures, that's just what I did. I sprayed with a vengeance, and a couple of them did keel over, but the rest just woke up and crawled around a bit, and then settled back down to sleep.

@skstein @eyesmile @http365proj @maggiemae @tremerryn @squaresparrow @dolphin @mittens P.S. The stink bugs are a plague--not your comments. I love reading your comments.
