gddm stink bugs
Maybe I should be happy that the brown marmorated stinkbugs haven't materialized as a pest around here yet but the green stinkbugs are horrible enough. They were a problem in my orchard the year before last and they're back and twice as bad as before. This year they are even all over my tomatoes in disgusting hordes.
I guess I'll mix up some Surround when I get the chance but I wish my northeastern climate hadn't apparently transformed into a mid Atlantic one. Has anyone tried the mint and herb based stinkbug poison and repellent? I hate to put poison on almost ripe fruit.
To those of you in the drought plagued parts of the states, please forgive my griping. I realize and sympathize with your much worse situation. But even with water and very good growing weather (after March, anyway) it is an extremely difficult year to bring in crops here as well.
Insect and wildlife pressure is the worse I've ever seen.
