a type of stink bug eh? Im used to the marmorated but the other species look mmore colorful.
Cochineal is raised by specialty natural dye outfits anywhere its temperate. We even have Amish dye works here in PA that have beetle works and dye farms.
The active ingredient in a stink bug is a type of butyl alcohol. So e get em here in Pa and theyve become a real ag pest. If I catch one in the house Ill throw it in the fireplace in the winter and they kind of send a flash from the alcohol burning.
Stinkbugs =renewable energy? dont laugh.
