Is there a way to repel them from your yard/home? I had no idea what they we're before this year and they're everywhere. I'm hoping someone around here knows more about them and how to avoid them. THANKS ahead of time.

Assassin bugs are great. But if you have TOO many, install a bird bath, feeder, and/or birdhouse. Too many bugs = not enough predators.

Thanks, I was planning on getting a bird feeder anyway because I heard they work best for clearing out mosquitos. Anyway, have a good day and thanks again.
 
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
