Yikes! Kudzu Bugs

I read in my local newspaper about a new bug in town called "Kudzu Bugs". When I walked out to my car after work today I didn't want to open my car door! The tracks, hinges and around the windows were invaded with these little ugly greenish brown bugs.

I read where they were first discovered in Atlanta in 2009. Kudzu Bugs are a member of the stink bug family and have a stinky chemical odor when disturbed.

The bugs stayed on my car all the way home, so now my neighbors can thank me for introducing these things to the neighborhood. Unfortunately for me, they are attracted to things that are white. Since I have a white car, a white trimmed home and love to wear white clothes, I'm pretty sure I have a new enemy.
