Will It Ever End?

  1. A Possible Solution:

    In Japan, Korea and China, where the brown marmorated stink bug is a native, the trissolcus wasps track down the stink bug eggs and lay a single egg of their own in each of the stink bug eggs and then move on in search of more.
    As the days pass, a larval wasp — wormlike and tiny — develops and grows, eating away at the developing stink bug. Then, one day, it breaks through the top of the egg as a full-grown wasp.
    Unfortunately the trissolcus wasp is extremely deadly and its sting is equal to being bitten by five cobras at the same time. This is an unpleasant side effect, but the trissolcus wasp does offer a solution none the less.

  2. my folks always get an influx of ladybugs. I'm not sure there is any good way to stop them. maybe an industrial vacuum cleaner to suck all of them up?
