What Are Stink Bugs?
Stink bugs are known as brown marmorated stink bugs. They’re an invasive pest insect that is native to Asia. In recent years, this pest has become a problem in North America. Stink bugs received this name due to the horrible smell they’ll emit when they’re squashed or scared. The first stink bug in the United States was found in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1996. Since then, sting bugs have been found in many states across the United States. They tend to grow up to ½ an inch to ¾ of an inch. Most are brown or gray. Stink bugs are easy to identify because they have a triangular plate on their backs that look like a shield.
