Should I be trying to eliminate two spotted stink bugs (a predator of Colorado Potato Beetle)?  Last summer we finally completed our raised bed vegetable garden.  I planted potatoes a bit on the late side but had a decent enough crop.  I did however have Colorado potato beetle in the end.  They did not move onto any other beds such as tomatoes which are a good distance away.  I know to remove or kill off the CPB, but will happen with the stink bugs?
