Facts: Stink Bugs

Species Name:

Halyomorpha halys

Traits and Appearence: Adults are approximately 17 mm long (25 mm = one inch) and are shades of brown on both the upper and lower body surfaces. They are the typical “shield” shape of other stink bugs, almost as wide as they are long. To distinguish them from other stink bugs, look for lighter bands on the antennae and darker bands on the membranous, overlapping part at the rear of the front pair of wings.

Habits and Habitat: The name “stink bug” refers to the scent glands located on the dorsal surface of the abdomen and the underside of the thorax. These pests can enter your home in a variety of ways including cracks around windows, doors, siding, utility pipes, behind chimneys, underneath the wood fascia and other openings that can lead into the structure. Damaged screens on doors and windows can also be used as an entry point for unwanted over-wintering pests.

Diet: This species is a serious pest of fruit, vegetables and farm crops in the Mid-Atlantic region and it is likely that it will also become a pest of these commodities in other parts of the United States.

Reproduction: There are five nymphal instars (immature stages). They range in size from the first instar at 2.4 mm to the fifth instar that is 12 mm in length. The eyes are a deep red. The abdomen is a yellowish red in the first instar and progresses to off-white with reddish spots in the fifth instar.

History: The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug is an insect that was accidently introduced to our continent. It was first identified in the state of NJ in 1998, but probably arrived earlier. As of 2010, records indicate the Marmorated Stink Bug has been found in over 37 countries. Some experts believe that they may already be in all of them.
