Ah fall. My absolute favorite season. The crisp air. The wonderful scents. The bugs. Wait...what?
The Farmer's Almanac has said we're going to have a warmer and dryer winter. The Weather Channel said October is supposed to be warmer with average rainfall. But when I'm finding these nasty things all over the house, I have to wonder if they are moving inside because they know the weather is about to change and not for good. I found 4 of them over the weekend. For some reason, they love the iron so I have to check it every time I pick up the iron for use. That's where this one and 2 others were.
I can't remember if these are merely soldier bugs or the dreaded stink bug. Neither is welcome in my house, actually, so they were scooped up and flushed away. I discovered if you didn't flush after tossing them into the toilet, the buggers figured out how to escape the toilet paper, swam to the side of the bowl and started to climb out. Yeah...that's not happening.
Beverage: Huckleberry tea
