Where did these Stink Bugs come from? I've lived within a 2 mile radius for 30 years and have never seen these up until 3 years ago. Now they seem to be everywhere, in all seasons.

Asia - they were first found in Allentown, Pa., and have been spreading since.

Thanks, Mike. I couldn't understand how they all just showed up. Do they have any idea of how they got here? I didn't see anything in that article about them attacking tomatoes, but I know they bothered mine. I've also seen other folks write about their damaging their 'maters.

As far as I know the lily beetles are still in eastern Canada, New England and New York. And Europe and Asia.

Nasty, nasty stink bugs. I am still finding them in the house. They were terrible the last couple of years. So I stopped growing vining veggie plants last summer in hopes of getting rid of them. I didn't have near as many as I had the year before. I have a great and horrible pic in the other computer I'll post it later. Holly

They are inocuous, but they still are a nuisance. I never grew vines and had lots of them in the house. When I was down in MD this weekend, there were a number of them in the hotel room. I saw one here in the house this week.

I will be just sick if those Lily Beetles start showing up here. Crying

We have had way to many stink bugs, we're going to have to do something with them. Ric

Yeah, You should have see me when I waded into the squash patch to see what was wrong with my squash. I noticed the leaves looked kind of wilty like they needed to be watered and then I noticed some turning brown. So I waded in to look at the area and that was what I found when I lifted the leaves. YUCK!!!!!! Holly

Alison, Those are amazing aphids. I've never seen any that big. Did the spray kill them right away? Did you have to keep respraying?

Bees don't bother me in the garden at all.

Good. I must confess, I don't check on the trees as much as I should.
