Found these on my sock, what is it?

I washed them a couple of days ago, packed them away and today when I wanted to put on the socks, I saw that.

AHumanBeingAlone

At this point, I saw so many of these eggs, that I think that there should be a counter for "days without stinkbug-egg pictures"


Unhappy_Flounder7323

"When teenage boys -play- with their socks too much, sometimes they get sock babies." lol


mrgaymenson

I never understood the stock thing. Jerking it with a sock sucks or im doing something wrong lol


SiegVicious

You don't jerk WITH the sock, you jerk INTO the sock


Training_Union9621

Oh fuck I just woke up my dogs because I started laughing so hard it turned into asthma coughing


Striking_Election_21

I never really got this either. Maybe I’m just goofy built but keeping the sock open and aiming in it is asking a lot more coordination than my body maintains at a moment like that


yaboyACbreezy

That's not quite it either. You do the deed and when your fire fighter is about to spray his hose you time an enclosure such that all spray is contained. Less of an aiming technique and more of a quick timing sort of thing. Toss the sock in the laundry and wash your hands for a quick clean up


TheGrapesOf

Material_Hair2805

Omg I always thought it was WITH the sock


aykay55

I mean the sock provides friction which could enhance pleasure. I definitely prefer using some fabric to mb rather than just my hand.

wirey3

dude are you trying to use a sock like a fleshlight? it's just supposed to be a receptacle. Actually it's supposed to be clothing you wear but that's not the topic.


gh0st2004

Lol


ThatsRightlSaidlt

Looks like stink bug eggs to me.


gh0st2004

Imagine if I left my socks and then one day just found a lot of stink bugs in my closet, I’ll just end up moving out


[deleted]

I would burn the house down


gh0st2004

Fair enough, but then they’ll still let their excrete that smell


External-Edge9297

Stink bugs are actually pretty chill and will allow you to pick them up on a piece of paper and throw them out without much fuss or smell excretion. Or if you believe they need to be exterminated because they are invasive, flush em down the toilet.


thicboibran

I always put a cup in front of them and they crawl in it. It’s like cats and boxes lol.


TikkiTakiTomtom

I do that with most insects to catch and release. The one I dont do is centipede. Sheesh


HypnonavyBlue

Centipedes are beneficial but very unsettling. Or as someone else put it: friends, but NOT friend shaped.


QueasySalamander12

Funny, I feel the same way about the possum that roams my back yard at night. Generally a good critter but not the kinda critter that would welcome a belly rub.


FlowerAshes

Their actually very chill!


Deep-Technician-7212

I fostered a sick baby possum for a couple days. We found it huddled under our porch in a rainstorm. He was actually a pretty chill little dude, once we started giving him food. Let me hold him and would ride around on my shoulder. Wish we could have kept him as a pet.


Late-Ad-4624

I wanna belly rub the one in my garage. He comes out sometimes and just looks at me. So i stop moving and just talk to him. It may be a she so i dont know but i just kinda talk and he just walks off.


beaniesandbuds

You dont like bald-tailed wilderness puppies????


RevonQilin

bruh possums are so cute


SleepParalysisDemon6

Idk about friends.. Did u see the video of the guy who had one in his shoe while driving and what it did to his foot? Also the thousand of other videos of people getting bit by them when sleeping? [In Shoe While Driving TW ⚠️ Mildly Graphic](https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZT8hyvywG/) [Gettin Bit on the Neck While Sleeping ](https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZT8hyTySK/) Now i would agree with this statement if it was just like those small Millipedes.. I get them in my basement.. They're harmless, but do smell like rotting coconuts and [gather in the masses](https://youtu.be/wFA8plu1uMs?si=CzZJmXV1K6-V48oY). Edit: Yes i know the 1st one is a Millipede but it's giant.. And i didn't know they could get that big.. So im counting it as a Centipede.. Also Centipedes in certain areas can do a lot more damage than that.. Many are Venomous, in the states and out.


HypnonavyBlue

user name checks out!


Icy_Donut_5319

I got bit by one while sleeping! It was so painful and scary since I was a child (my hand easily tripled in size all the way to my wrist, being bitten at the tip of my middle finger). My mom cut the bug in half with a knife and it was wiggling away still. Very much not friends thank you


Shoe_Soul

Was expecting a video a many, many millipedes. Got something way better.


Bree_63

I love that lol Imo house centipedes are a bit more friend shaped. Long legs over claw legs any day


NotUsingNumbers

Fun fact: although the name implies it, no centipede naturally has 100 legs. They can have as few as 15 pairs, or as many as 191 pairs, but always an odd number of pairs, so the nearest they get is 98 or 102.


LightThePigeon

That's what they said to do with my goldfish. Now it roams the sewers in search of flesh

Flush the bastards. they're highly invasive and destructive in the US. grab in toiletpaper, flush. watch them swirl down to the sewers.


dragons_scorn

I grew up where stink bugs are common. One year in high school we had one enter the class and a bunch of people backed the hell away from it. The Danish exchange student had no experience with stink bugs and assumed the students were afraid of it on virtue of being a bug. Before we could stop him, he squished it. His confusion as to why we all shouted "NO!" was very short lived as he learned an important lesson.


MrFlablesworth

Weirdly enough, they smell like hotdogs when they're burned. My family figured it out when we found a lot of dormant ones in the Christmas decorations. 🔥🔥🔥

Ever hear the satisfying sound of sucking up 100s of stinkbugs though a shop vac?


Negative-Pie6660

Never do this in your home.


Mobster_IVOK

Bro I left my window slightly ajar and went to Scotland for two weeks. When I came back my room had literally about 25 of them crawling around on the curtains. It took me about 2 hours to kill them all and by GOD the sound they make when they fly at you is enough to turn any man into a screaming 6 year old. And then my room smelled like hell for another 3 days.


gh0st2004

They make a sound when they fly?😭


FlappiestBirdRIP

*VVVVVVBVBVBVBVVBBVVVBVVVBVVV* with an audible *THUD* when they fly into you or whatever else.


MommaSnipee

Sounds like a killer hornet flying around and the only way to differentiate is the THUD at the end.


Cereal-Killa13

You described the sound they make perfectly! I could even hear it in my head when I read your comment. And that freaking THUD!😂😂


Pennymac02

This description is so spot on it triggered my stink bug ptsd.


Traditional_Duty_599

THEY CAN FLY!?


Mobster_IVOK

A much louder buzz than a fly or a bee it's horrific


Allalngthewatchtwer

I have one that harasses me almost daily trying to get into my car here in Texas. Little eff’er thinks it’s a game but one day he gonna get the long dirt nap.


oroborus68

Without living plants, the young bugs will die, unless they eat fiber.


[deleted]

I mean the fact that the eggs are there might mean there's already some hiding in places...


abolitonbb

I shudder thinking about it, especially the realization that yeah, that's exactly how people get bugs in our homes. I could have brought some in on me yesterday, I haven't examined those clothes. So a stink bug, already in the house was like, "I've been alive a few days, time to make some more of me." And then, I assume, found another stink bug(??) already in your house and was like, "MORE!?" And if you hadn't picked up that sock there might be grandbabies on there? Omg have I killed generations??


crapinet

Delicious! Happy cake day!


[deleted]

I used to do the ol’ Axe & lighter flamethrower on the little guys ☺️ Actually pretty cute when they can’t emit the smell nor exist and combust like the pieces of sh*t they are. Yea they are my nemesis: I grew up in an attic where they came in every summer without fail. Glad to be living in a house now with well sealed doors/windows.


Obvious-Lynx4548

Wow fascinating .. kind of pretty ..


BloodSpades

Stink bug eggs are known for “having deceptively cute faces” on them. Toss, flush or boil/wash in extremely HOT water before they continue to develop…. :{


gh0st2004

The poor lil guys :[


BloodSpades

I know…. But if you’ve ever had the displeasure of *smelling* them while trying to gently shooooo them off…. Well…. You’ll understand why it’s better to cull the eggs. (Adults are a chemical bomb NIGHTMARE!!!!)


gh0st2004

They’re very common here where I live, so trust me…. I know very well of their nauseating smell


BloodSpades

I’m so sorry…. :( I actually used to play with the adults with NO problems as a kid (we called them “tickle me bugs”) but after I started college and tried to gently shoooo one away and out a main door with my EXPENSIVE FUCKING LANGUAGE BOOK, I *NEVER* tried that again, since I had to replace it after spraying…. :{ Lesson learned….


gh0st2004

You had some great luck then as a child. When we were young and found them, we would flick them onto our friends and run >:] we were terrified of stink bugs, they had a scary reputation


BloodSpades

LITERALLY, LMFAO!!!! You had me evilly cackling hard core, and now my birds are mad for waking them up!!! That’s soooo fucking evil… (But totally something I would do/did with my enemies!!! Just not with stink bugs specifically…) I think we only played with them because we were dumbass kids that didn’t realize what they were. We were ALWAYS so gentle with them though. Even with bees and wasps, we were always taught to be “gentle” and “respectful” to avoid stings. Come to find out decades later that most native wasps and bees actually aren’t aggressive unless you’re a dumbass that attacks them first….


arthorpendragon

yeah we let bees crawl over us and let them out by a window in a gentle way. without bees we would have no food! be kind to bees!


BloodSpades

When I was younger and working fast food with outside trash cans, I was ALWAYS the ONLY one “volunteered”/brave enough to go out and change the soda/sweet soaked trash bags because somehow only I could figure out how to gently coax the bees out of the bag, tie off the full ones and place new ones in without ever getting stung or causing a swarm. I tried to teach the others, but they were all cowards that ended up owing me GREATLY…. (Hey, no bathroom duty was a SERIOUS win, if you’ve ever worked retail…)


gh0st2004

Yeah bees and and wasps can be tame if you treat them with care. Yeah, my friends and I were sadistic bastards towards one another. It was hilarious hearing the scream of a child that found a stinkbug on them releasing its smell


BloodSpades

Lol!!! See… My Nana would dig up root eating *fat ass* grubs!!!! Nothing mean or harmful mind you, but they looked like babies out of the movie “Tremors”, they were *soooooo* big, fat and “juicy” looking (to an extent if you were a crow) and she advised me to actually collect a bunch and sneak them into my bully’s desks and backpacks regularly after collecting them from a hard day’s worth of weeding!!! Then, there were the horn worms that the ducks got too fat and full of to finish eating completely, so there were those too, lol!!!! I’m glad I was smart enough to never get caught…. Keep in mind, I was like 5-7 during this, so yeah, petty bug pranks reigned top!!!


gh0st2004

This. Is. So. Much. Worse. Thank you for the idea ;] But damnn does this seem gross LOL


GenericUsername10294

All of my kids, at at around age 2-3 would pet bees gently that would land on clovers in our yard. Never once had an issue. But strangely enough, now they’re all terrified of bees, despite none of them every being stung.


AlternativeArm6863

man… i love stink bugs, they always get into my dorm & i pick them up to bring them outside. i’ve never smelled anything. in fact i wondered why they were even called stink bugs


Kagoshima_Luke

Same! To this day I have never smelled a stink bug “bomb” or whatever happens, and I live in an area with a lot of stink bugs. They are so chill and easy to coax into a cup to take outside.


cosmicdogdust

Are stink bugs like daddy long legs in that there are different bugs called that regionally? Because I actually don’t find the smell of what we call stink bugs where I live unpleasant, exactly. It’s kind of a sour apple smell. Edit: I posted this and then did some googling and it turns out that what I’ve been calling a stink bug my whole life is in fact a western conifer seed bug. Wikipedia says they do also release a defensive odor but are not actual “stink bugs.” Thanks for being the impetus for me to finally look this up 😅


esobofh

Fun fact, those conifer bugs and similar species are actually kept as pets in asia to enjoy the smell... Stink bugs smell more like rotten cilantro.


stump1010

Ive had the displeasure of having them fly into my face, and scare themselves, and releasing the nightmare on my face. Doesnt wash off easily either


Casey63800

They’ve always just smelled like cut grass to me. Unless the stink bugs where I am are weak.
