Box Elder Bugs,

They coat my house every autumn. Are they poisonous to BTS? If not, are they a suitable feeder insect?

Im pretty sure they emit an odor and have a bad taste to predators. I highly doubt a skink would eat them. That said, I would not due to the possibility of pesticides or other chemicals they could have gotten into.
