Default Stink Bugs And Yogi!

I Live In Pa-The Stink Bugs Have Never Gone Away Since this summer. Look Iam A Clean Freak,and this is driving me crazy. You Have To catch them crawling and dispose of them, If you squash them the order is terriable. I chase Yogi all the time,he will find them as fast as i do-in his mouth they go.

He Has ate a few, the vet tells me give him pepto.
I Just Wondered if any of your Babies have ever eaten one.--Or You Have This Problem also.

It Scares me because of my Yogi. The Vet Says I Worry To Much--Well When You Have These Darlings,You Can Never Worry Enough.

I remember them when I lived up north. They sure DO stink! I don't remember my dogs eating them though.

Oh yeah, I remember at least one time when Ivy snatched one and crunched it down before I could grab it. She looked up at me with her eyes all scrunched up going bleh bleh bleh with her tongue definitely not liking the taste, and WHEW it stunk! I'm sure she'd try to eat another if she finds one though. EVERYTHING goes in her mouth still. I'll be greatly relieved when she outgrows that stage.

Lisi caught ****-roaches last fall in the US & she tried to eat a HUGE grasshopper from our balcony here that got caught up in the fur near her mouth/eye---really scary! She never learns!

Info on stink bugs:

What Are Stink Bugs?

And don't worry about your pup eating them. According to this article in some parts of the world PEOPLE eat them !! BLEH!!

"Stink bugs as food: Stink bugs are eaten in some parts of the world and people who eat them say that the bugs strong flavor enhances the flavor...they are sometimes eaten live in Mexico or are mixed into salsa or used as part of the filling for tacos."

I have never heard of a stink bug.....I cannot imagine a human voluntarily wanting to eat that. YUCK.
