    There's a stinkbug that has taken a liking to my Apple keyboard and LED screen. Right now he's walking all over my monitor. He's taking trips across the screen and is puzzled about why the brightness and colors keep changing as I move windows around the screen. Before, he was warming himself on the CPU. What should I do? :eek:

    What is a stinkbug? I thought this thread was going to be about a really smelly housemate or something :D I suppose if they got close enough to the CPU and it was really hot it would just die maybe..

    That's a stink bug. Reason it's called a Stinkbug is because when you squish it, it releases a foul odor. It's so predators won't eat it....

    I hate those buggers with a passion.

    Over-kill, and wasteful of a precious resource ........... gasoline. ;)

    Use a BBQ lighter, in the manner of a little flame-thrower.
