So, we're into our routine autumn stink bug invasion.  They're trying to get into the house, and I'm trying to vacuum them up as quickly as possible and return them to the great outdoors.  I don't like them much, but they've never injured me personally...until today.

I was speaking with my husband earlier and, as is my habit, put my hands in my back pockets.  I felt something in one of the pockets, so I played with it with my fingers...until I felt something sticky.  When I took my hand out of my pocket to see what it was...

ACK!  Squashed stink bug...IN MY HAND!!!!   Stink bug guts were everywhere...and the smell is clinging to my hand. 

I may need to go dip myself in bleach now.

Gross!!! I found one peering up at me on a shirt I was trying to put on.  Not a good morning.

I second the bleach!

What is a stink bug?  All I've got trying to invade are mice and crickets.

Even though the winter here sucks, I'm glad it makes it too cold for lots of smelly bugs, and poisonous snakes and spiders.

Ew.  Undecided Although better than "in the ear" which is what I first thought when I saw the subject line, because in the ear is the worst place for any bug IMO. But ugh, I'm sorry, that's gross.

Have you tried rubbing your hand with coffee grounds? Not sure it will help but it helps with other bad smells that cling to hands, and it can't hurt to try it.

I finally got the smell off my hand with six washes.  If it happens again, I'll try the coffee grounds...right before they commit me for not being able to stop screaming.

Did I say ew yet?

I've done slugs before - very gross.  But the worst was when I had a mother cat teaching her kittens to hunt by bringing in these tiny baby mice.  They apparently lost one and I found it about 3 am on my way to the bathroom.  Barefoot.  I stepped on the skull and it popped.  It seemed so loud for the size.  I bleached my foot.
