    From what I've been reading they are becoming a major problem across the US, especially for farmers.

    They like to live in the Vigilant. They can take a surprising amount of heat.

    Sounds like those stink bugs are the good type; dead. Pipe sounds good and good for you that you've checked it.

    The first time I open the stove every fall there are a dozen or so of them crowded around the doors... They are pretty disgusting. Clean out the ones that I can see and let the rest toast.

    They are a disgusting pest in the area.
