Stink FUCKING bugs!
Brought to NE Pennsylvania sometime in the 90's. Don't care exactly when. I just want to get my hands on the asshole who said, "Ah, they kinda' smell bad, but they don't hurt anything."
They've already caused MILLIONS of dollars in crop damage here. They have no natural predators because they AREN'T native to this country. And did I mention that they STINK?
Think about 15 open jars of formaldehyde!!!! They make a buzzing noise like an angry wasp. Which happens to be the last thing you hear before they crash into either your forehead or cheek!!!
And if you crush them they TRIPLE their stink. It's a call to all their friends and relatives to come to the funeral. The advice from the agricultural extension office is to spray INDIVIDUAL
bugs with soapy water and then vacuum them up.(They also suggest purchasing a dedicated vacuum for that purpose, because the sweeper starts to STINK!!!)
But don't set off bug bombs to kill them because then carpet beetles will invade your house in order to chew on the little stinky bodies. Which boggles my mind, because I can't figure out why they would only
eat them if they are dead.
I wonder if they flew through a portal....................OK, I'm done now.
