Unhappy does stinkbug spray hurt leather?!? help!

Hey there, everyone who lives in the new england/virginia area should know what im talking about. That's right. The stink bug epidemic. Well last year my mom got sprayed in the face by one, and her skin sloughed off. I was wondering if it would do the same thing to leather because they have invaded my brand new collegiate saddle and I have to "de-bug" the flaps of my saddle everytime I ride, and I don't want to accidentely crush one in there in fear of the same thing happening to the leather :((( does anyone have experience with this? Thanks guys.

Yep, that's pretty much what they look like. They are absolutely everywhere though, I turned my room upsidedown the other day to try and get rid of them all and I must have flushed 300+ of them. Everyone has them in their houses and they havent come out with a safe way to kill them with chemicals because if you crush them they leave a "stink" (which is actually acid, hence my moms face, and my friends dog ate one had a seizure ): the acid is what im worried about) and that attracts more of them -.- so I use a spoon, and a large cup about half filled with water (they don't swim very well, but don't leave them in it unattended, they will crawl out!) and I swipe 'em off the walls into the cup, the flush!! Lol. ..kinda off topic, but it needed a little explaining I guess.

Yes, they're EVERYWHERE!
I put on a pair of jeans before work yesterday (that had been folded, in a drawer) and I could feel something moving behind my knee. Took the jeans off... stinkbug.

I'm so ready for them to die/migrate/hibernate/whatever they do!

They are insanely gross, and this is the one time I am thankful I live in a condo and have none in my home or on my porch.

Not a helpful post...just want to say...that is so gross!!!!

Every couple of years my parents house (and the whole area around them) would get infested with these beetles that look like lady bugs only without the spots. Those things BITE like heck, so I feel everybody's pain.

;-; I have a phobia of these things..I've had multiple panic attacks from just them on their own, and because some people find it funny. :/
I wouldn't even spend the night at my BO's because they're in her house. I was reluctant to spend the night at my best friend's too, because he has a few too-I felt safer in his house than if I were to sleep alone in my BO's house though.
But really...on our trails, we have the normal stinkbugs, and then there's a different kind, instead of just the brown, they have like..florescent shells on them D: I think he Japanese beetles and stinkbugs bred to create them .-.
But anyway...I think they need to all just like..have heart attacks and die off. I'd be soo much calmer and less jumpy xD
As for the saddle leather...I have no clue. ;; I hope not, Im very fond of the saddle I use at the moment, which is leather xD

Still havent figured it out, maybe someone here will have had an experience with it. I think I am going to have to buy a saddle bag the zips up so I can seal them out of it, just in case.
