Dead Stinkbug Landmines

After taking a much-needed leave for Mother’s Day, we returned to find dead stinkbug corpses littering the field. Our secondary defenses had kicked in, and the enemy soldiers who had attempted to infiltrate the fortress while we were away found themselves either dying an agonizing death from the poison perimeter they had crossed or succumbing slowly while stuck to the enticing Tower of Death. Our first impulse was to celebrate a joyous victory.

However, we soon realized that even dead, these vicious stinkbug intruders managed to pose a threat. They had positioned themselves with their dying breaths in a random pattern that spread throughout the building, requiring us to step cautiously as we entered in order to avoid inadvertently triggering a dead stinkbug bomb of poisonous odor which could quickly envelop the unwary walker.

Is there no end to their evil?

    I’m hoping to find lots of dead carcuses too Lydia : ) Had the exterminators out here at my house today! Hoping to at least eliminate most of them.
