What do stink bugs look like?

Brown marmorated stink bugs (Halyomorpha halys) are medium-sized insects, typically measuring about three-quarters of an inch in length. They are brownish-gray in color, with a mottled pattern on their wings and bodies. They have six legs and a pair of antennae, and their most distinguishing feature is their triangular or shield-shaped bodies.

Are stink bugs dangerous?

Brown marmorated stink bugs do not pose a threat to people nor do they cause structural damage. They can be a nuisance and cause damage to crops, fruits, and ornamental plants. Additionally, their odor can be unpleasant and overwhelming, especially in large numbers.

How can I tell if I have a stink bug problem?

Stink bugs start becoming a problem in homes when the temperatures start to drop, typically late summer and fall. These nuisance pests will show up and congregate in large numbers on the sunny sides of homes and buildings. If they’re able to find a way in, it’s quite common for stink bugs to overwinter inside so you may spot live or dead stink bugs in your home if so.

What attracts stink bugs?

Stink bugs are attracted to warmth and shelter and will enter through cracks, gaps, and openings on the exterior.
