Rich, do you have the Asian lady beetles that move in after the beans have 
been harvested?   Ugh, they are terrible.   They bite, smell & leave a stain if 
smashed.   I understand, after talking with a grape grower/wine maker they are 
a real problem for them.   If I is collected with the grapes they have a chg 
of wine taste.   The grower said both he & his son, who are in business 
together, ate a beetle to know what they taste like.   He said they taste just like 
they smell :-( Yuch
