That stinks!

Wayne Gardner, an entomology professor in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, was quoted in an article about the migration of the globular stink bug, which eats kudzu, in a story in the Alabama-based Birmingham News. Gardner said he’s seen the bugs 30 stories high, coating the window sills of Atlanta condo high rises, and he has seen them swarming in roadside kudzu patches.

“You smell them when you get out of the truck,” he said.
