Don't pick on the box elder bug!

On the morning news, the reporter was talking about getting rid of the box elder bugs which are expected to reach their highest numbers since 1988. I was a bit annoyed with this report, as I found they are nothing but a small nuisance.

On top of that, our son has spent countless hours this summer learning and mastering the word, as in "Dad, bug, look." (I think I heard that about 1000 times this summer as he pointed to large groups of them sticking to our garage!)

Now I'm relieved. I thought the box elders were only invading my garden.
There are so many of them.

They sure are plentiful, but they don't seem to do any damage.
