The Hated Bug

boo... my first inside-the-house squash bug sighting of this year. Hank had said last year's onslaught was unusually heavy. I hope that is the case. I despise the little stinkers. No sign of the lady beetles yet, FWIW.

Yeah we have asian beetles here. Bloody things are so gross and I had them in my room one time and they like got piled together in the corner....I never got rid of them like at all that year.

You'd think something called "squash bug" would be meant for that purpose, but they have a sickly-sweet over-applied perfume thing that happens when you try to get them to live up to their name. That trait is very unfortunate for them (and for my karma), given that I can't just let them go (seeing as how they will just come in again). So, the nice quick death I usu prefer to provide my fellow creatures when dispatching them is replaced with staying in an old blank-CD container until they have left this veil of tears.
