State of the stink bugs (poll)

Entomologists say that stink bugs have now headed into their overwintering stage. In other words, they may be hibernating in your attic or walls and can crawl out into your living space at any moment.

Some researchers say that the stink bugs could be as bad they’ve ever been this year. But in my house, the stink bug situation seems improved compared to last year.

Here’s a poll to assess the stink bug situation in the Washington area this year. Compare the stink bug encounters where you live to the past year. Feel free to comment with any extra information.
