OK, our final post on the dang stink bug nemesis

RESCUE!Stephanie Cates, director of marketing and communications at Sterling International (the Spokane Valley-based makers of the Rescue line of bug traps), filled us in by e-mail on the prevalence of stink bugs …. or the lack of stink bugs in our part of the country.

See lower item for the earlier post on Rescue's plans for a stink bug trap this summer.

Here's her comment:

  “They have been discovered in Washington, though not in any great numbers… yet. Aside from it being a nuisance pest in homes, the stink bug can be devastating to farmers.

Interest in and demand for our new product has been most substantial in the Northeastern U.S., especially in PA, MD and NJ.”
