What Are Stink Bugs?
Table of Contents
Stink bugs or Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs are invasive pests that are native to Asia. They’re somewhat new to the United States and North America as a whole. These bugs are known as stink bugs because they’ll emit a bad odor when they’re scared or crushed. The nasty odor is released as a liquid from small glands found on the bug’s thorax. Stink bugs were first found in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1996. Since then, they have appeared in states across the country.
The stink bug population is growing rapidly. Stink bugs have a distinct appearance with a triangular plate on the back and white stripes on the antenna.

These bugs are problematic because they can cause extensive damage to gardens and plants.
