"Jamal Adam's an exclusive come out in the New York Daily News. He's calling out the entire organization. A couple of days ago, he's calling out the owner for his involvement as an ambassador to the U. K. Allegedly set some things that weren't too kind when it came down the race. He's been calling out the New York Jets asking for trade. And now, he says the head coach Adam Gaze, is not the person to take the teams of the promised land. Jamal Adam says that this is the best player on the team, he says the coach doesn't even address the team. He let someone else do it, especially when things about What type of deal is that? The New York Jets are at the top of the list or one of the teams that are just dysfunctional. Or some other teams that cannot get out of their way to save their lives. Are we talking about? Ah team in Cleveland. There quite a few. There's a team up in Michigan. I could think of The Clippers. They pretty much fit the bill for a long time. Phone lines open 855 to 1 to four. CBS That's 855 to 1 to four. CBS. Let's start off in Georgia. Let's talk to David David you on CBS Sports radio. Oh, Good evening, David team. There is no doubt in my mind and nobody can beat the Atlanta Hawks have been the worst franchise in the history of sport. I found them since they came here in science from Saint Louis in the light 60. They're horrible. They've never tried to win. The Hawks are pitiful, and I don't want to get any better. I mean, Why not? I think they'd be good, you know? You have me. Have you heard? Have you heard of the Clippers? George? I mean, David, you're the heart of the Clippers, Way actually Won one championship. The braised managed to be another Loserville, Cleveland. Yeah, I was going to say Have you heard of have you heard of the Browns? You're David. Now, listen, you're honestly going to tell me That the Atlanta Hawks have a worse history than the Cleveland Browns that the Hawks have a worse history than the Clippers. In my opinion, Yes, they have. Not anything that you want. The last time you're anything built about plan all well, David, Donna, my players I've had Dominique Wilkins. They had beat mayor of its 21st kind where they've had some great players, but they don't want to win. That one won enough to go the playoffs and then they don't get a good draft pick and then the next year. I mean, I Nelson David. I can all I'm telling you is And I'm I'm here in Georgia. David. I have ah, lot of friends at the Hawks, but I can tell you that there are teams that are in worse situations and have been worse. Maybe that's a little bit of Ah, personal pain that's peeking through David. I mean, you just mentioned Ah. A bad team in Ohio and speaking of Ohio. Let's talk to Jonathan. Jonathan. You want CBS Sports Radio, which which wonderful Ohio team are you going to tell me is pretty dysfunctional. You got you got your pick here. Man. To be honest, I'm agitated Brown's mama but my beloved Browns And how long? How long have you been a Browns fan, Jonathan. Like 20 years. So what's Dave? Once? They've come back? Do you? Let me ask you? Are you confident? That they concern everything around this season. If they play because if they don't you might as well say, hey, we're going to suck for another five years minimum. Man. My whole thought about is Aah! What? The what the owner has done lately offer like man. I feel like this is like the last chance honestly, like you. This is the last chance, man for like, If you cannot pull this off, you hired You went Ivy League route you You've got people from Harvard from yell, you know, to manage TTO manages the whole operation. If if they cannot do anything about it, at least get it to the playoffs, man. Then do what you gotta go, man. You gotta go. The owner has to go for Ah, well, good luck with that one appreciation, but then for calling up from Ohio I just look at the players on the field. They got a lot of offensive talent Baker, Mayfield and Landry and Beckham and shop It goes on and on and you just gave you just gave Garrett a big contract on the defensive side of the football. If the Browns can't win with this group. They start over and they're going to be in the toilet for guess what? Another five years. I guess that's not unusual. Let's talk to Anthony. He's called enough from Michigan. Anthony, You're on CBS Sports radio. Go ahead. How you doing? I'm good, Anthony. Shoot. Hey, look, if there was a total pole totem pole for dysfunction, the Detroit Lions not only are at the top of the totem pole there at the bottom of the totem pole, no one has been as few tile. As this organization. Is the Fords took over this team think about this cleanly should get a pass because they're basically an expansion team. They want a championship. Theyjust wanted in Baltimore. The Lions have never even been to a Super Bowl. At least the Jets have been to a Super Bowl. Kansas City is killing themselves because they just want a Super Bowl, but they want a Super Bowl before day. The Lions have alienated not on ly Calvin Johnson, but Barry Barry Sanders. Yeah, they they went and extend it. Matt Stafford, or as we call in here. Had Stafford because that's all he is. He's just a stat machine. He's got a bad back. He's making more money than anybody on the team. You go to Calvin Johnson and as for a $1,000,000 back And you've given this guy almost 30 a year. Isn't saying. Hey, Anthony. Go ahead, Anthony. Well, before I want to hear about the coach, tell me what you think about the coach of the players who hate him. They are. They are the example of the old Andy Griffith chill when Quinn is is Andy Griffith. And and the coach is Barney fight, He comes a hitching up his britches. No credibility whatsoever. He's running off of Belichick's coattail has alienated every decent player they've had and chase them away. And here. Here's where they they're smart. Go ahead and board the Ford gave them both a five year extension after they got rid of call. Will they tank? Everything? Now that they've gotten rid of the guys who were functional. They're going to get another few years because now they're going to cry to the board that we got to get our own players in It's a merry go round of futility. Hey, Anthony, you got to do me a favor. Anytime I talk about the lines, you got to call up, okay? If I don't throw up first. Thank you Shout outs. The Anthony for cold enough for Michigan. Anthony, you be safe. You be well. Anthony is passionate about all those lions. And Anthony also did not sell a live. If that, he told a lot of truth in that conversation. Let's go to Mobile, Alabama and talk the Elvis. Elvis, your CBS Sports radio Go ahead. What's going on, Brother. I'm good. Give me a dysfunctional franchise. A man Anthony from Michigan and makes a pretty strong argument because you know they've been puke in on themselves for years. A medallion. I really feel like that this list. To me is really more about who's who's a dysfunctional owner because that's where it flows from you all these franchise they have. These beautiful owners just cannot get out away and the worst of the worst. Is James Dolan with Nick's. How can you not get good players and come to New York? It's a new day. It's a basketball hotbed. You play in the mecca of basketball. People love NBA stars in New York and nobody wanted to go there. They think I'm gonna team in New York irrelevant. He's awful the worst. You've got to go. I'm not thank you Elvis for calling up from Mobile, Alabama. He brings up a good point. You're in New York City, and players don't even want to show up the play. It's because of your own ineptitude is pretty bad, pretty terrible. Dolan stinks, We got I mean, that's a whole nother conversation. I feel like we've had that one before. When you talk about bad owners will there The fish rots from the head. It's like who's at the top of the organization who's hiring the president who's hiring the general manager? It's a bad situation when you think about these squads and you think about these teams. A lot. So you want seen.

"Personal development made for and by the Modern Brown. Mama you gotta listen to the show to open up laugh and maybe even cry TCI and we're bringing your preview here so you can see what you're missing. The sugar is A. Place for MOMS MOMS to be undecided. Aunties to talk all things motherhood We get the opportunity to speak about things that a lot of the Times. We're left out of the conversation whether it's via mental health and also indulge in the joys of motherhood and being where we are and and speaking on that whether it's you know potty training to talking back to how we are changing the the story of how we raise our kids and this is a place where you know when I first brought this idea to tie and cultivated it with her to become a bigger part of another part of what we're doing. Which is Sugar Berry? I was pregnant with Ella. Who's now three? But she was in my belly and I was searching for a community. I was searching for products. I was searching for other people who looked like me and had fibroids in that. I wanted to talk about and understand Struggled with as well so this is a place of love laughter understanding and also getting a lot of Resources and advice practical advice for US I think as black women. There's so many parts of our journey and particularly our journey to motherhood that we have to package up. Put a bow on. And it's about strain than being a superwoman. Doing it all and I really wanted a place where we could actually unpack all in that and be really real with each other and delicate You know are broader mission. It Sugar Berry is to be a brown. Mama's guide to the sweet life we think we deserve to indulge too and to be vulnerable and to be light hearted You know to find the best resources for ourselves and our little ones. And that's what this is about and so. I'm excited to share to share in the sugar and the sweetness But also to really be real. I remember you know going through. Ibs myself and thinking. This is the loneliest place. I've got a broken body is so tough to navigate. And what's funny? Is the minute that I started talking about it. The minute that talked about it at work or with girlfriends you find everyone's going through the same thing or some variation of the experience or have experienced Some areas of doubt or frustration. But no one is having that exchange. Yep so I feel like when we're really honest about what our experiences are. It gives everyone else permission to do. So nobody's getting a gold medal at the end for saying you did it all by yourself right. That's no one even knows. Can I say you don't get a gold medal for having a non epidurals pregnancy? Yes you don't get a gold medal for breastfeeding for two years. Yeah you don't get a gold medal for sleep not sleeping and being okay. You don't get a gold medal for anything right. There's no prize if you want the epidemic. Get the epidural bottle feed and bottle feed. But they're so much mom guilt that other moms give us. I got guilt guilted for having a C. Section that I could not control months to be careful. We have to do that you. There's a thin line between advice in judgment right and so everyone doesn't need our two cents if you ha- if you WanNa know what I did great if you don't find but whatever you choose I'm sure your kids going to be okay if you're providing for them if they're safe if love there's a whole spectrum of right answers exactly now it's time for our mommy mantra so we're excited to introduce the segment. Every week we will You know sign off or leave you with a mommy mantra and it's an affirmation or a bit of assurance just for MOMS something sweet to carry you through the Week. Nab incursion quote anything like that So I have one go ahead I'm allowed to make a big deal out of things that feel really big to me. that's from I think it's Amy Carly I just feel like sometimes people make The things that feel big to US small yet or that they don't matter like you have a good live and you don't need to complain about this or you don't need to even like saying complaining because you're talking about situation and I think sometimes when you have or you don't have you can start feeling like well. Nobody wants to hear me or here. My little problem right. Your problems are big to you. And I think it's okay to say them out loud and they they're valid and people sometimes make them invalid because they're not big to them so I think it's I'm allowed to make a big deal out of things that feel really big to me. I love that. It's similar to what my mom always says to me. If it's real to you then it's real so it's okay to acknowledge it. You don't have to qualify it. It's just this is what I'm going through. Here's what it is yeah. I love that the sugar is out. Now listen on stitcher apple podcast or wherever you get your podcasts..

Battling Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs

"We're GONNA start our show today by taking a trip back to the nineteen eighties when singer. Songwriter Billy Joel was at the top of his game and he released two. Song Allentown about the decline of the steel industry. In America steel factories were closing in steelworkers. Were losing their jobs. The song shed light on the challenges the workers faced and at the same time. It made allentown a city in Pennsylvania quite famous so now let's fast forward twenty or so years. Two Thousand and one and Allentown is in the news again but this time it's because of an insect an agricultural pest from Asia had somehow found its way to Pennsylvania. The insect called the Brown rated stink bug feeds on apples. Peaches figs mulberries citrus fruits and other crops. Well it didn't take long for these tough little bugs to spread and by twenty ten. They wrecked havoc on orchards and crops in various parts of the United States. And the really bad news. Is that Brown? Mom rated stink. Bugs are still here and there on the move and they may soon arrive to a fruit tree near you. So what can we do about it? I've invited Tracy Leschi to the studio today to find out. She's an entomologist. And by the way an optimist as you will discover in this interview today. She's also the director of the Appalachian Fruit Research Station at Cairns Ville West Virginia. Her research is focused on the development of behaviorally based management tools for invasive and native pest of fruit crops. But before we start chatting I would love to hear your stories and your questions during the show you can email those questions and stories to in-studio one. Oh one at g mail DOT COM and do remember to include your first name and the city. You're writing from so tell us. Have you seen these bugs in your fruit trees? And what have you done about it in studio one a one at g mail dot com is the email so now to Tracy Leschi. Thanks for coming on the show today. Thank you Susan for the invitation. I'm so glad to have you here. And hopefully you will shed some light on these mysterious bugs. Oh my goodness so. The Story Starts Allentown. Can you tell me a little bit about that discovery? What was happening around then here. So you know Brown Mama Rated Stink Bug as you've already mentioned is a species that is not native to North America. It's native to Asian countries including China Japan Korea and Taiwan. This insect is an excellent hitchhiker And we'll probably get to that in a little while but at some point in the to late. Nineteen nineties homeowners. In and around the Allentown region of Pennsylvania were Seeing some interesting invaders in the fall to their homes and in fact these were Brown. Mom rated stink bugs. Now the issue was is that they weren't properly identified until two thousand one when Karen Bernhardt who with Penn State cooperative extension in Pennsylvania collected some of these specimens from a homeowner and she ended up sending them to attacks honest Rick Holbeck at Cornell and he identified them as Brown mom rates. Think so this was the first official record of population in North America. So how on Earth would they have gotten there? How did they get to these people's homes right so one of the interesting things about Brown mom rated stink bug is that they are excellent hitchhikers as adults and that means is that they can sort of end up being concealed and hidden from view and sort of take a journey to somewhere else and this is related to what we as entomologist refer to as their over wintering behavior which is essentially like hibernation for insects. So when these insects hibernate more or less they crawl into cracks and crevices and hunker down and wait for spring. And if these cracks or crevices happens to be in some sort of shipment of goods or perhaps in your suitcase or who knows This is how often these bugs have been transported to new locations. Whoa so how quickly would they spread? So let's say or what a what a thought. Let's say it's in your suitcase. You've gone on holiday to China. Or whatever he brought back these little hitchhiking bugs So let's say you have one bug or two bugs what happens then. How quickly would they spread? Well if you found one or two bucks I'd tell you to kill them I but You know it's a good question. They have a pretty good Reproductive capacity that sort of what we say in terms of you know how quickly can a population build up? Based on the reproductive efforts of a female a single female can lay up to twenty eight eggs at a time in in an egg mass. And she can lay up to four hundred over her lifetime. So you can imagine if you know. Just a portion of those eggs survived to adulthood and then reproduce. You can see that. A population could build rather quickly so is is that what happened like You know how quickly did this problem spread? You said it started sort of in the late nineties. It was discovered two thousand and one. And then what happens? Well what happened? After that was it was a slow spread And it was a slow build up for a number of years so in two thousand and three I found the first specimen officially outside Pennsylvania in Maryland. Just south of Allentown Pennsylvania. I in in sort of central Maryland in a town called Hagerstown There was some. Also some official detections in New Jersey and then it continued to spread through what we refer to as the mid Atlantic here in the United States and to Virginia West Virginia You know parts of Delaware Into upstate or sort of well. I should say downstate New York so the populations continued to build Over a number of years and then you know really began to build quickly back in two thousand eight two thousand nine and in two thousand and ten throughout the region. We really experienced what we refer to as an outbreak population. So what did that look like Especially if you're growing cheese. Yeah it looked well you know. When we first began to detect problems in fruit trees from Brown mom raided stink bug and say two thousand eighteen thousand nine. The issues were confined really to the late season. Where just before harvest and this is really painful. If you can imagine your fruit just about ready to be picked from the tree almost ripe. We were seeing large numbers of adult invading the orchards in the fall and feeding on the fruit and this was causing for some of our local growers up to ten percent loss. Even back then but in two thousand and ten we saw the bugs invading earlier much earlier actually just after the fruit had formed just after pedal fall essentially in these orchards. In that early season feeding really set up our growers for significant losses. Where you know for our Peach Growers. Many growers lost their entire crops. Most lost half of their crop. And then it just went on from there. You know apples and Incurred ABOUT THIRTY SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS IN LOSSES. Thousand and ten just locally. That's terrible was the fruit. Not salvageable at all. I mean what what do these Brown marmalade stink bugs due to the fruit? Yeah they are you know. They are a typical stink bug species in that their mouth parts are essentially a straw and they insert that Straw into the fruit tissue and they inject some salivary enzymes that essentially helps break down that tissue and suck out the juice and so what they leave behind. Is this dry corky tissue beneath the surface of the skin as well as discolored display depressions on the surface now for peaches because the feeding Began so early essentially once you peel that fruit. The entire fruit was riddled with these deep pockets of dead comey tissue and you know. The entire fruit was essentially unsolvable. It was just a complete loss. For FOR APPLE. Growers some of the fruit could be redirected to From sort of a fresh market to juice market. But you know they're getting Cents on the dollar in terms of the value so in essence they're losing over. Ninety percent of the value of that fruit have normally gone into fresh market. So it was very

"Well but I know that that's the situation many of you have found yourselves in and many of you chose a long time ago to start doing it and that's exactly what mafi Mendoza did years ago she decided to home school her kids and a lot of the other moms in her organization brown Mamas have been doing it for years she's been holding on she joined us out earlier on the disk Institute of Pittsburgh news line was intense I know how to go about it thanks for hanging in there might be we appreciate you Andy no problem and I absolutely would love to give out some tips so I got there before I think that in this time with the coat with the corona virus and the subsequent court scene that's happening I really want to encourage parents to really be patient with themselves and be patient with their case I want to give some really practical and realistic tips that you can use just in terms of having your kids home all day and managing the stress that often comes with having your kids home all day and the first thing that I always give parents because I tried to do this with my kids when I first started home schooling them and it didn't work is do not try immediately to put your kids on a schedule like it's not hard to schedule that they're used to at home we have to remember that when kids are at home there in a certain mindset they're in the mindset of I'm home I you should be able to do whatever I want to do so you trying to force them immediately into a school schedule while they're at home you're going to get a lot of rebellion so what I always try to tell me that of trying to schedule the day anchor the day so let your kids wake up when they want to wake up and this is good for mom and dad because he gives you a chance to anchor your morning whether you're anchoring of your morning looks like getting up and checking your email or having a Cup of coffee or whatever expand your day a little bit recognize that you have twenty four hours now so allow them to wake up at nine thirty and allow them to go to bed at eleven o'clock so you can get that extra time in the morning and then think about some core fundamental activities that are going to make you feel as accomplished as a parent because at the end of the day your kids are smart they're intelligent they're going to pick up a lot from just living everyday life but what what's most important is that parents to destress anchor your day by asking yourself the question every morning what do what's the one thing I need to teach my kids or I need to do today to feel accomplished and go with that one thing first so typically what I do with my kids every day and I know that if I don't make them readable I'm going to get frantic because reading is such an important part of schooling so we start off our day with that they do the twenty minutes of reading and they do twenty minutes of the match from there from there on everything else is icing on the cake so really start out with those anchoring activities first and then I always tell parents another way to send to your day is just by doing the basics so does your house needs to be cleaned do you need to do a load of laundry like these are all home economic things that we want our kids to learn in schooling that we now have the power to teach them at home so think about all the things that you did your kid maybe weren't learning in school how to balance the budget if it's today's bill they have them sit down with you and write out the bills and then show them how to go online and pay a bill this is a life skill that they're going to need anyway so this is a great time for parents to really infuse their kid's life would not only some calm in some de stressing but also with some of those homes acolyte skills that they wouldn't normally be getting in school wow that's awesome and you're right I mean things like paying bills as of the kind of thing that we all talk about I wish they taught in school but they don't absolutely and so you you mentioned that you had put together a book or eighty eight a workbook for so I actually wrote it awhile ago for myself when I started and so it was really interesting that this happened because I was like oh I can sell that but I create any day you had to be schooling actually wrote it when I was the schooling my own kids because I was getting so much push back from them I would try to sit down at the table with them to do math in there like I don't want to do this on a sunny day they just want to go out and play so the twenty day Gadsby schooling you can find it on brow mamma dot com underneath the home school resources tab it's an actual walk through of what you need to do to get your kids ready to learn and also how you can assess what their skills are so that you can help them to learn from a place that intrigue weather thing Cole are you always like to say you know education in our country is compulsory and every kid have to go to school every day but what about if you could take that education that they're getting and feed it to them in a way that they would actually like it so that would be schooling is all about the schooling is about taking out the time it's a twenty day god forgive you activities to do over a twenty day period takes you step by step through the process of the schooling so you're still teaching your kids but you're doing it in a way that helps them to actually want to learn instead of trying to like we talked about before squish all of this learning into a six seven hour period you're giving yourself time to destress by centering your day and listening and learning and witnessing your kids and you're also giving your kids fun activities that give you a clue in to what they like to learn so for the learning assessment one the things that you can do in the problem it's got to be schooling the learning assessment one of the activities that it asks you to do is to do an art project and then to come up with a learning experience around art so that you can figure out is this a wave at my kids learn my does my kidney to have color pencils in their hand to learn there are just certain things that because our kids are in school we don't get the time to really sit down and figure out what makes them tick and we forget that people that kids are people too is I was saying and you'd mentioned this a couple times and one of the things that I have read online is that a lot of times as parents we don't know our kids in that regard because all of this happens in school so we don't necessarily know that part of our kids absolutely and my husband was in the grocery store yesterday and he came home he was telling me a story he's like I'm listening to these two women pop and the one of the women was talking about how she wished she could have at least one day a week where she home schooled her kids because she was saying that you know there were just certain things about her kids that she didn't know whether it's getting to know their friends better because I don't know about anybody else my teenagers walking around the house on his cell phone just about all day because he is in school my oldest son is in school and so I'm curious to know his friends because they're talking on loudspeaker and I'm hearing them having conversations that wouldn't normally here so like I said before instead of trying to like create this dynamic schooling schedule and actually bring the classroom into your home recognize what you can learn about your kids over the next thirty to sixty days like there's so many things that you can learn and then you can go back to their teacher and say Hey this is what I figured out about the way my kids learned is there any way that we can do this instead of that because maybe they had to be in signs that it wasn't working but maybe you figure out that your candidate can ascetic learner and they need to use their hands and they maybe need more visuals when they're learning so this is a way for parents to really be impact for taking those twenty days to be four is really a way for you to be in power about your child's schooling journey instead of being like an impotent bystander on the side kind of just watching it go down I have so many more questions to ask you so I need you to hold on again and I don't even have kids down to school anymore but I have more questions marquee Mendez it stick around I got a couple more questions.

"And before we get into our guests, just a little background about why we're even talking about this today, according to vox, four states have passed heartbeat bills this year alone banning abortion as early as six weeks into pregnancy. Alabama just passed a near-total ban on. Russian at any stage of pregnancy with no exception for rape, or incest. Missouri moved step closer to passing a ban on abortion at eight weeks. Gestation also without exceptions for rape, or incest, the Bill passed the state Senate. And now return to the house for approval. I was down in DC at the mom friends with over five hundred black and Brown mama's. We talked about everything from raring, our children to self care. And I feel like it was so very necessary to even touch on in my keynote speech. I feel like I would have been remiss if I didn't speak about women in general and how we're under attack in this country and talk about the, the really inhumane antiquated stands that's been taken with the current recent events that cripple women's rights and just so happens that Jamila Lou was down with me in DC, and we were in passing, we didn't get to really chat and talk. But I thought she'd be an amazing person to have on today to speak about the chair. Change in abortion, rights and women's rights. So jamila. How are you? I'm good. How are you? I'm doing well. I'm doing well, thank you so much for joining us today, developed by we just felt like this was a current event topic that we had to touch on a little bit, especially after the weekend we just had in DC. Absolutely. Thank you so much for joining us truly grateful for your voice, I've been following you on Twitter Instagram and seeing all the work you've been doing and it's amazing thing. It's also being a mom yourself having a beautiful daughter. So I appreciate you to step in here. And, and being a voice from Elenio.

"Okay. But underneath the line. He gets here before the red light comes on because we were talking about other interesting things, obviously to me than the show of the opening of the show this morning. We were talking about what creeps actually Frasca out. And if you would ask actually what it would be six legged things actually found a six legged thing on the floor of her call screening cubicle this morning and declared that that was the biggest creepiest thing ever seen in a world. Eight lay things demand four-legged thing doesn't mind six legged things minds thinking about that. As speaking of six things the things that are. Creepy. Not creepy. Sorta creek actually that is stink bugs. Now, why am I thinking about stink bugs thinking about stink bugs because just Wednesday? I guess was the afternoon. I was driving around windows down is pretty day. A stink bug was crawling nonchalantly across the day in my car. What is a stink bug doing in my car flying around? They're looking for a place to live for the for the winter to place to gang it with all stink bug buddies. Stink bugs right now. The particularly there's one called the Brown, mama. Rated stink bug. Brown. Mama. Rated stink bug. Now. For those of you are not sure what a stink Billy exactly is. There's literally their name stink bug. Can you guess why? Are they got that name? Yes. You probably can. Because if you mash them. Stink. And it's not. Cowman think it's just it's very pungent. Only a stink bug. Makes it smell stink. And so state bugs one of the things that they do particularly the Brown bomber aided state book is they use a little bit of their stink to find their buddies. All right to find where their friends are where everybody's hanging out today. And when they find them they all get together and hide or hybrid. I guess the word the hibernate in the walls of houses sometimes in holiday, so sure this whether they used to do it before we had houses is hide. But now, they love houses, they love love love love houses was loose. Citing houses was little voice by the windows. It didn't get filled by expanding phone with houses built of their life. A little easier vote. The attic where they can get into the house or the light light pictures of the ceilings, they love to be in warm places for the wintertime. And what happens when it warms up during the wintertime is they move around a little bit. And they'll feel like, you know, it's a little warmer inside inside the house is the dining room inside the bedroom. Is out here in the wall of the house is that they go crawling inside the wall inside the rooms of the house. And if you mash one, you will generally know, why they're called stink bugs, and if you try to easily I'm not gonna touch that not not not going to touch that thing. I'm gonna use the vacuum cleaner. You'll find that was think both get irritated like being slung into spinning blades cyclonic vacuum cleaner. They release all the stink at once and your vacuum cleaner will smell like stink bug four weeks as you use it. So Brown, mama. Rated stink bugs what they look like sort of shield shaped there about half the three cores or closer to three quarters of its long. The distinctive marking on them is the white stripes easy to see easy to see white stripes on the antenna, although legs and little bitty. Star-shaped thing describes little bitty white marks on the age of their body shield outside of the body. Stink bugs now used to. What was it six five six seven years ago? Now, what are their one of their kin was loose in Georgia called the kudzu bug. Also, a member of the stink bug family. But it didn't look quite the same. As like a little English Pete with six legs. And you see these these kudzu bugs on as you guess kudzu vines around the state and people were really worried about these kudzu bugs because if they eat kudzu, they probably also eat soybeans and peanuts of which, you know, we're big producer in Georgia. But fortunately because e book which came from evidently, Asia Japan, China, but because the book has natural enemies has diseases the things which took a while before they became established. But about six or seven years ago, the national enemies of the kudzu bug started causing the numbers to decline. So all the kudzu patches around Atlanta where I'd pass by sometimes and smell. This kudzu books in their patch. Now you pass by them. And then no longer any kudzu bugs in them. The mill mama rated sink bugs still here we have developed or nobody or mother nature has not yet developed any kind of natural control for the more rated stink bug. But if you see one eight don't pick it up Beadle vacuum it up. See what do you do with it? Get a stick and brush it outside do something that doesn't irritate his releases its stink push it outside. So it doesn't release it and hopefully you won't see anymore. But if you see a lot more than it may be time to bring in a professional deal with it. You get it out of the house and not mess. Up your household appliances? I don't know if you have seen the Brown. Mom, rated stink bug easy easy, easy to spot. Our phone number this morning. If you have a question about things that creep you out.

"Well, the season's certainly is winding down for gardeners lawn people and everybody else, but Jim visine still has some things to talk about. And we're going to do that this morning and the Android stand. The subject Jim is bugs. Yes. You know? We talked about bugs getting in like, spiders and some weeks ago. But there there are things now that are beginning to become kind of petty, and these are creatures that normally don't come doors. They don't eat indoors. But they will find someplace to to get indoors if they can. And they they just spend the winter in with you. We're talking about box elder bugs Asian ladybugs and a new one that's come on the on the on the scene as the Brown. Mama. Rated squash bug the world's first of all the the box elder bugs, really smaller red and black bugs. They put on by villagers in the summer, but they normally cost red rocks and things like that for the winter, but they'll try to get indoors. And they they cluster on the side of a house where there in the sun, and they get kinda deep there, maybe two or three and sex deep in big big clusters, and they want around. That's how they get indoors. They won't hurt. Anything you can vacuum up indoors. If he'd like they weren't they're not going to bite. They're just a nuisance Asian ladybugs. These are these larger ladybugs multicolored that were imported to control corny, but it's many years ago. They have the same habit of clustering on the sunny sides of buildings, and we'll wander indoors they don't bite, but they made pitch people think it's abide. Well, it kind of is but not it's not going to injure anything. They don't eat anything indoors or just in there to to spend the winter and my inclination is leave them alone. And they get into our house once in a while. And if you don't do anything. And they eventually disappear. You don't know where they are. But they're spending the winter then at spring, you're going to see them come back out again, and they'll try to find a way out, and that's time to put him outdoors. They are beneficial. You don't want to kill them if you can avoid that. Now this problem, mama. Rated squash bug is a new creature. That's moved into this area. It's very damages kuker, but squash and pumpkins and so forth in the garden. It's a shield shaped insect about a half to three quarters of an inch long and wide. They're either just to seek shelter. They do not bite, but you don't want to do anything with them that will squash him because they are stink bugs. And I mean, they smell kind of bad. So if they get indoors the best thing to do with them is the vacuum them up. These are not beneficial creatures that you want to save like with the lady bugs, so back packing them up and getting rid of them. As is the best thing to do with them. Now. Want to talk a little bit about pumpkins. Yeah. It is. You bet did is great time. And there are a lot of mild there. And I'm I'm really surprised with what weather that we had that the girl is such a good job of producing them the roadside stands and the the farmer's markets your featuring pumpkins right now. And of course every year. I get people asking me, I I would think that after so many years of us talking about it. There wouldn't be anybody out there that would have a question like this are the questions like these about one is that it is this a fruit or a vegetable and the answer is yes, it's the fruit of a vine plant, but it's used as a vegetable. And then is it a pumpkin squash? Well, pumpkins are squash vine plants. They just happen to be one of the species of squash. That we grow as pumpkin we have summer squash. That are things like this who Keeney straight next squash. And so forth. We have a standard orange pumpkins like the New England pie in the field. These don't happen to be orange Brown. These are the ones that are. Grown for for canning, pumpkin. And then we have wonder squash. Now, the pumpkins that we use for Jack Leonard's are both of the the orange, pumpkin. Type in the winter squash type. They they're just they're grown specifically for that. The orange pumpkins are not generally used for canning or anything. Although if you do have an orange pumpkin that you don't car these can be used for making pumpkin pie or for for making, pumpkin. Putting that you can can freeze or can they keep for for the middle of winter when you wanna pumpkin pie? The the giant, pumpkin. Contest is where we find a difference between the squash and pumpkin as far as their terms are concerned, giant companies are particular species of pumpkin. There are a couple of them that are grown just for their huge size and here in Illinois. I think the record is somewhere around two thousand pounds from one of these things, but I just saw recently that the that the record out in California was over a ton. I don't know how you would do that. But they have a lot longer growing season. Their first of all, I don't know how you had moved the thing the wet. But that's that's what the giant pumpkins are just a a little bit of information about the commercial pumpkins, the state of Illinois grows about ninety five percent of all the canning, pumpkin. That's the the brownish colored one grown in the United States are grown down along the Illinois river if you've been down there and looked out in the field that looked like there were big footballs out there. That's what these things look like when they're ready to harvest the harvest. Something around one hundred thousand tons of these each year down there the Dixon field and the buckskin pumpkins. Very interesting that that would be a product or a crop that we grow here in Illinois, but not grown very very much in any other place our climate just right for and our farmers down, there know, how to grow it like nobody else the soils are great, and they have plenty of moisture at the right time at your girl days. And that's that's what makes it such an important crop down there. Now, let's talk a little bit about the the other pumpkins that we have that we use for ornamental pumpkins. We have a variety of pumpkin. That turns white it's grown white. That's the way it is. You don't have to paint it, but you can paint different colors over this. You can carve these pumpkins. If you want to, but generally they're used for painting because this white color of them as good background for that. Incidentally, while we're we're talking about the pumpkin farms. One of these places or visit one of these places now this would be a good weekend to do that. Or do we still have next week? And that you can do that before Halloween. Bigger pumpkin farms are are featuring things like special events. They have haunted houses, pony rides petting zoos. And of course, most of them have cider and doughnuts that you can get to while the kids are having fun. You can sit down and have a doughnut and some cider also at the pumpkin farms. They still have things like apples a lot of them carry stuff year around because they are a farmer's markets as well. And they have a lot of things that you can use for for stories over the wintertime, like potatoes and onions or other items that most of these carry like Honey from the cheese, some of them have mushroomed, jams and jellies and a lot of baked goods. Anyway, that's that's something that you want to do when you go out to to get your pumpkins. It look at some of the other things they have and most of them have stuff that you might need for winterizing your garden.

"Com this is msu today here's russ white my guest is msu entomologist howard russell let's talk about a stink bug what is one first of all i understand this one most people are seeing is a newer one the one people are complaining right now about is the brown marm rated stink bug and this is one that showed up in michigan for the first time back in around two thousand and ten and was i found down in southwest michigan and since then it's been spreading throughout the lower peninsula now are the harmful to people or pets not so much to people in pets they're pretty important plant pests that attack tree fruit apples peaches and also though though attack a lot of garden crops to tomatoes and even some field crops corn and soybean so we've yet to see a lot of damage in the fields as a result of this bug the their most notorious right now because they invade homes in the fall of the year and what they're doing there is just looking for someplace to s protected spend the winter so we're unfortunately we're just starting that process so four or five years ago we had i had complaints of people finding two or three in their homes during the winter a couple of years ago maybe a dozen or so but now i'm getting calls from people that see dozens in their home and unfortunately that trend is gonna continue to go up out east where the bug has been around for a while they shovel off their front porches so people can expect to see hundreds of not thousands in the next few years of these things on the outside of their homes while news right so they don't cause structural damage but very dangerous to agriculture well they're important plant pass so you know in the last thirty or forty years apple research has been pretty successful in reducing the number of insecticides applied to apple's just with good eddie granted systems monitoring and things like that but the brown mama rated stink bugs gonna change all that because there's such a threat we'll have to apply a lot more to keep them out of the orchards so how do we can troll them can we control them well in terms of homeowners in keeping out of their homes i.
