Stink bug or very small turtle?

I've been dealing with these stink bugs all summer. Harmless but loud when they fly around. At least they're easy to catch/crush.

I've got these goddamned miller moths in my pantry. They are impossible to get rid of.

What makes this variety different from the stink bugs I have known since I was a kid? I live and grew up in the Annapolis area.

crap, me too -- but not Millers. These are way smaller. We've been fighting those little ba$tards for weeks. My wife found some decent little glue traps (they use a tiny little piece of some unknown substance for bait) that worked fairly well and we thought we had them beaten back. But they're apparently gathering their forces again, I saw a couple last night... and they can get inside ANY container, no matter how well you think it's been sealed.

Stink bugs are everywhere here as well. Aptly named little bastards. Better to throw them out than squash and get the big stink. And god forbid one get fried in a halogen lamp, worst smell ever.

Yeah I think these are the same as what you describe. I find they have invaded some old flour or tortillas most often. I took everything out, threw away anything that was contaminated and bleached everything and while that got rid of them for a while they still came back. Gonna have to do that again soon.

That turtle has a nasty looking growth on top of it. It just doesn't look normal.

Our cat chases them and eats them. They are not a problem at our house.

He also eats the spiders. Guess there is some good to having a $5k cat.

He won't eat the snails in the flower garden though.

We went through the same thing with millers last year. We finally found the source. It was an "unopened" box of Bisquik. They had made it their base of operations and pretty well messed up the pantry. Removed the rather disgusting box and the problem went away.

We just spent over $500 on Xrays for the new puppy. Turns out he has some kind of degenerative joint disease and they recommended we get him a CV scan and see a specialist. Before we spend that kind of coin, we're trying a glucosamine supplement first--can't afford the specialist right now. Pets are expensive.

Yeah...he doesn't seem to be hurting any, but he has a bit of a limp in one leg and that's why we had him Xrayed. Hoping this supplement will help with the symptoms. It's supposed to be pretty good for this kind of thing.
