This year, there are literally thousands of twice-stabbed stinkbugs covering my butterfly bushes and hollyhocks. These true bugs are the size of a ladybug and fly like a ladybug. Since the hollyhocks are butterfly host plants and the butterfly bushes are nectar plants, I have chosen not to spray them with malathion which is what my county extension agent recommended. I have cut the hollyhock down to the ground and have severely cut back the butterfly bushes. I put all the cut branches into large black plastic bags and hauled them to the county dump. I fear, however, that these little critters may have already laid eggs for their next generation. If anyone knows more about these "demons", I would like to hear from you.

Just found these, they are exclusively on a golden hyssop that I planted this year. Wonder if they came to my house on the plant? Their numbers are increasing rapidly, so based on what other people say I'm going to start dropping them into my cup of soapy water with the Japanese Beetles!
