    As if there isn't enough in the world to worry about, now there's the bed bug issue.

    Are the stink bugs driving you crazy??? I hear on the news how bad some areas have them. We have them but not overwhelming. We have more and more every year. Sense we have a wood burning stove. I get some in the house during the winter because of the wood.

    This is an extra-long story that has gone on for about 2 and 1/2 years so I'll spare you the details. I will let you know that we have burnt mattresses and furniture, tried multiple over the counter products, slept on couches for weeks, and prayed so much I feel guilty continuing to ask...

    It's called a bugzooka. It uses suction through an expandable tube to grab the bug and it uses no batteries!! I found one at a yard sale for a dollar and could not believe it would work as well as it does. I caught about 10 spiders since I got it and have seen very few since then...
