FRIENDS WERE ENJOYING THEIR AFTERNOON COFFEE WHEN A STINK BUG SAT DOWN CLOSE BY

Fortunately Jo had her camera in hand, and took the above photo of Mr. Stink.  Jo’s partner, George, said “Stink Bugs are an invasive species and that’s one of them. It’s a bit smaller than my thumbnail. We get quite a few in our back yard and most of them are very small. Does it stink? Only if you squash it, which we didn’t.”When a Stink Bug invasion took place in TORONTO’s Annex over two years ago, Metro News columnist and resident of that neighbourhood, JOHANNA SCHNELLER, said: “They emit this really disgusting smell, like rotten leaves. It’s pungent, it lingers in the air.” SQUASHING ONE – Ms. Schneller didn’t think much of them until she squashed one.  Her disposal method – get a wad of paper towel, squish the bug (don’t open your hand), then swiftly flush it down the toilet.JO said – “Famous last words – I’m going to hit one of those to see what it smells like.”  DAVE said “It’s a flying skunk.”  ROSS said “Don’t flush paper towels down the toilet, Stink Bugs or no Stink Bugs.  It will clog your drains.  Toilet paper is best.”
