So I was thinking. (One of my more dangerous pursuits.) And had a terrifying epiphany of sorts.
As I gingerly carried yet another tissue enshrouded stinkbug to its watery grave via the toilet, it hit me. This has to be the primary way most people dispose of stinkbugs. You can't squash them, or you'll be engulfed in an unholy smell that may just be a sentient being in its own right. So you capture them and flush them.
Down to the sewer.
This practice may have unwittingly created a situation rife with apocalyptic potentiality.
STINKBUGS IN THE SEWER
*cue echoing effect and scary dant dant daaaaaa music*
Yes, stinkbugs in the sewer. Not unlike alligators in the sewer.
Except stinkbugs are swarmers. My brain keeps terrifying me with images of crazed mutant zombie stinkbugs hopped up on toxic sewer gasses, rampaging across cities in devouring hordes - scarab beetle style a la The Mummy.
But I can't come up with a different disposal system. What shall we do? How can we stop adding more numbers to their growing sewer army without unleashing a scent clearly from the bowels of Hell itself?
I'm stumped. The comments are open for your suggestions.
