A wasp? That's all you got? A tiny, all but microscopic insect is supposed to save us from the Great Stinkbug Invasion of '11? We're doomed.

" I realize that I might seriously regret saying this, but it is hard for me to see how they could get worse. At our house last fall we had to be careful to differentiate between cosmetic stinkbugs and load-bearing stinkbugs that, if you killed too many of them, would cause a bedroom to collapse.
