Ah, another neighbor!! My our area is growing around here.:thumb:Yes, the leaf footed stink bug to be exact. These things are very destructive and very prolific around here. Whatever it sticks its pointy mouth into eventually begins to rot. Worst on tomatoes, peaches and beans. They do many times more damage to my garden than all other bugs combined.
I definately do not squash them or touch them, but I do give them a malathion shower when I find one, or their little bright red urchins. That seems to ruin their whole day.
