Stink Bugs Count Stopped

The stink bug's full name is the brown marmorated stink bug. It does not belong to the US. These beetles might come from Asia or some other region. But these insects are now in full bloom all across US especially in areas of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. But these stink bugs have been found in 40 states of the country.

“To track their whereabouts, the U.S. Agricultural Department had been asking people to participate in the Great Stink Bug Count from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. But now the key researcher has been furloughed and the website has gone dark,” according to ConsumerReports.

Great Stink Bug Count project is also being stopped along with several other projects due to government shutdown. But it does not mean that you cannot do something to stop these brown creatures. You can take some precautionary measures to stop the entering points of these stink bugs into your house. 

You need to find out each and every hole in your house to seal them. If the glass door or window has some cracks or damages, repair or change them. But if still you see any stink bug into your house, dump it into soap water where it will die. You can also use vacuum cleaner to clean your house from these brown stink bugs.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
