Hey John -- very long time no talk. Glad to see you're still fighting the good fight and providing excellent support and advice to the world. You're still my best kept secret for critters, and I lurk from time to time to see what issue folks are battling with.
I have two issues that have popped up the last few years. Neither is really an infestation, but its a nuisance.
The first is stink bugs - I see the brown marmorated (sp?) stink bug on walls, floors, beds, etc. Always just one, usually two or three a week, and all over the house, not concentrated in one spot. Any concern here, or just flush em and move on? I have no idea where they're getting in right now.
The other issue which appears more in the summer (or fall) are yellow jackets in the house. They are also usually alone, one or two a week, and appear weak when in the house (not flying, usually just sitting or walking slowly). I even had one sting me in bed that was lurking in the covers. I do see these concentrated more in our bedroom, so I''m inclined to think there may be a nest in our wood siding or windowframes and they're getting in. Anything special I can do here? They're a non-issue right now, but want to be ready next time around.
Otherwise, I hope all is well with you. Have a great day!
