Posted 26 September 2010 - 06:19 PM
Residents in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas are concerned about an invasion of stink bugs.Channel 11 News has received multiple calls about the bugs being inside people's homes.Thurman Mitchner and his girlfriend, Chirsty Teest, said theyâ€™ve been at war with the bugs for the past several weeks. Mitchner said he doesn't know how they get in his home and doesn't know how to keep them out."The other day, there must have been five or 10. They get in here somehow," Mitchner said. "There is one right behind you. Look at it. It's crawling on the window."The Washington County Penn State extension director said the bugs originally came from China, Japan and Korea."That's where they are native to," said Lee Young.Young said the bugs can be found from August to mid-October. He said the bugs like warm spaces. He said the best way to get rid of them is to vacuum them up if they get inside and he said to keep them out, you should seal cracks and crevasses at doors and entryways.The bugs are nothing but an annoyance, said Young. They do not carry diseases and do not bite or sting. â€¢

|I just flick them off. I guess they are everywhere this year. At least they don't bite.|

Anyone want wasps? These buggers are bad this time of year. Usually mid to late August until the first frost or two hits. I don't dare sit outside with a sweet drink and my epi pen is at hand at all times lol.
