If you don’t know what stinkbugs are, you may very well live somewhere where there are no pushpins.
Sadly, I live near the largest pushpin. And boy, oh boy, do we have stink bugs.
It’s my nature to want more information. (Big surprise, right?) So, I ran a social media monitor of the past month on stink bugs. A huge volume of ezine articles and “how to get rid of these creature” articles emerged. And tons of spam. Tons. After cleaning to my relative satisfaction, I learned that there is more talk about stink bugs as the season progresses. Surely not a huge shock. Still, it’s comforting to me to see a graph. (Go ahead, make fun.)
And the map up there? That’s the geographical representation of that data. Very cool. (Though more cool if you live where there’s no pushpin.)
Of course, my next curiosity was sentiment. (Kidding!)
I actually was interested to see what words frequented the posts and updates. Find. Kill. Hate.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
