What sucks is that the screen door on the back deck is a POS, and the weather strip leaves an inch gap on both the top and bottom. So, if the storm door is open, they can still get in. It's beautiful outside, but I can't enjoy it because of the mother fucking stink-bugs. At least two get in every day. I want to scream.
And they are the calmest bugs in the world. It was on the top of the curtain and I wanted it to move so that I had a better shot of trapping it under the cup. (You can't squish them...they get all stinky.) So I tried shaking the curtain. Nothing. I swung the door open and closed a few times. Still nothing. Finally, I started blowing on it, and it decided it didn't like that. It slowly started to crawl up. I thought "Yay! When it gets onto the wall, I can trap it." Haha. No such luck. It stopped when it reached the ledge of the trim. It proceeded to crawl back and forth on the trim for the next 15 minutes or so. Finally, FINALLY, it started down the side and I was able to trap it. I was going to be nice and take it back outside, but that little fucker pissed me off. So I took him to his watery grave.
