Stink Bug Scuttle
So we decided to light our first fire in our new home's woodstove. Way Cool, Right? Wrong......as soon as we touched the match to the newspaper and smoke and flame began to rise up the stove pipe, all these horrible stink bugs came running out and up the stove pipe. You could actually hear them scuttling up the pipe, their scratchy little fingernails, desperately seeking an escape route. So we slammed the glass door shut on the stove and vacuumed up the few who did manage to escape. Fortunately the heat and smoke carried their stink up the pipe and out of the house.
