Pitching a stink (bug)

This has to do with sustainability in the sense of sustaining a stink bug- and stink-free household. Which is nice. CFAES’s Ohioline website has a helpful free fact sheet about brown marmorated stink bugs, where they come from, what they do and how to control them. You can download it here. And our entomology friends at Virginia Tech have a short, clear video (only 24 seconds) showing how to build your own research-tested, effective, inexpensive stink bug trap that you can watch above or here. Brown marmorated stink bugs move into homes in fall, looking for a place to spend winter. They’re a non-native invasive species in the U.S. and are a pest, too, of fruit and vegetables.
