The ravings and ramblings of a retired lunatic....once professional, now just an amateur.
A stinkbug. Don't squash it. They fill up empty spaces--like your attic. No further advice; they're like roaches.
Ewwwww....glad it's outside.
It's a stinkbug. You're going to have to burn down the house and move, I'm afraid.
It has moved on so I guess we won't have to all the fire department.
They are harmless, I'm pretty sure. We have them around but they don't bother anything.
I'm not sure it's a stink bug - the body doesn't look the right shape. Have a look here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_marmorated_stink_bug
It looks harmless enough...in time it will fly off home. Just stopping by to catch its breath. :)
I agree, it's a STINKBUG....if you squash it, it will SMELL BAD. We had a ton of babies this year on our house and cars because evidently they hatched somewhere nearby, I hope not in my house or garage. Fortunately, I haven't seen any in about a week. Today I came in the house and had 3 spiders; two on the ceiling directly over the coat rack and one over the doorway. Yikes! I got rid of them fast. Don't let them bug you.....
It took off. Hopefully to a land far far away. Never heard of such a thing before. Ugly little devil.
Stink bug, thwap the screen and send him flying. Don't squish and he won't stink.
Stinkbug is also the first thing I thought of, like everyone else said, do not squash him...you'll be sorry ha ha.
It's just a bug taking a break. He'll be gone soon enough. Look the other way for a while. Or just tap the screen lightly from your side to encourage him to move on.
If it is a stink bug, they are ugly but harmless. However, where you see one, there are probably hundreds (or thousands) around. The good thing is that they are very easy to catch and dispose of down the toilet.
I tend to leave alone and hope they fly away ...All the best Jan
It's lovely to know someone else is out there. Please leave me a comment...pretty please.
