Stink bugs are large, oval-shaped flying insects and can reach 2 cm in length.
Their common name is derived from the odor produced by glands in their abdomen which scientists think is a defense against predators. While some adult species are brightly colored, most are brown or greenish in color.
Most stink bugs feed on plants and can be serious threats to crops. Once a stink bug attacks a plant (i.e. a peach), it is no longer fit for sale. Other stink bugs eat insects; they may eat destructive pests like caterpillars, beetles and other plant-eating stink bugs.
Stink bugs invade homes in late summer or fall for warmth. Stink bugs cluster on walls or on the inside of windows. Make sure cracks around doors and windows are properly caulked. Vents in the attic or crawl spaces are common entry points, so be sure to replace any torn screens.
