Plans to terminate the stink bug are in effect. The first launch sequences will be initiated at 6:18PM. You must escape the primary blast zones.

The "bait" is the LED light. These critters are attracted to light (which is why you see them hanging out near porch doors, etc). If you follow these directions, I believe that it will work. Using the "soda bottles" means a 2 liter bottle. I know a couple of people who have already made them and they seem to be working.

Another note for animal owners: Perhaps checking the underbellies of your dogs and/or cats who come in and out of the house is a good idea. I've found them on the long fur of my dogs a couple of times. Once inside and the animal shakes or rolls around, or whatever, the bugs drop off and then begin their journey to the center of your home. In any case, it is worth checking; and, just as important, check YOURSELF! These bad bugs will cling to anything and you may not even see them.

I say mail all the stink bugs you can to the US POSTAL SERVICE HEADQUARTERS and the congressional oversight committees until they lower the cost of 1st class stamp to a quarter, freeze union pensions and worker salaries, fire the hugely paid and incompetent senior management, and charge magazine publishers and the junk mailer the ACTUAL cost of delivering their mail. If you can think of a better use for these bugs, let me know! The government has had studies going on for years about what do do about the postal service and DOES NOTHING! I've HAD IT!
