Stinky Little Pest They Are

I was just saying a day or two ago, that I was having a light pest year on the Tomatoes, and how I was wondering it was the organic program.  Past years have been nightmarish with Stinkbugs here laying waste to many a great Tomato.

I thought this year would be different, but today it appeared as if they arrived overnight like a plague.  There were 5 or more stinkbugs on literally every fruit.  I pulled out my Dust Mizer and hit them with DE.  Hopefully that will put a dent in them.  If not, there are more powerful organic pesticides, but judging by their numbers, I need to be very observant and progress fast.
