Yesterday, my Robin messsaged me that her tomatoes were not looking as good as they had been. She found a few stink bugs, and then she saw something that looked like a ladybug, but not quite. It turned out that the stink bugs do eat leafy plants, tomatoes included, and the ladybug-lookalike was an Asian beetle, which is carnivorous, so would be okay to have. However, apparently , nothing eats stink bugs because of that awful smell (except for @Bobby Cole , but that is a different story thread) , so they have no natural enemies. Since Robin keeps her house all closed up, we are not even sure how the bugs got in; but she said the Aerogardens were on her fireplace mantle, and I wondered if maybe the pesky things came down her chimney. So, tonight, (last thing before bedtime) I am checking the plant progress in the Aerogardens, and sure enough........a huge old stink bug was in the large Aerogarden. I flushed him down the toilet, and then went to check the Sprout Aerogarden, which is where the newest tomato starts are growing, and darned if there was not another stink bug in that one, and looked like he was chewing on one of the baby plants ! Thought I should just let everyone know, especially the other Southerners here, watch out for your little plants and bushes, because the enemy is attacking. PS They have a "spike" in their stomach, and the nasty little critters will stick you with it if you pick them up and they can get to you. One of these got me on the tender part of my finger, and it still hurts, so beware of that danger, as well.
