  • The smell of the Brown Marmorted Stink Bug is obvious and annoying. But the stink bug is more than just a smelly nuisance; it’s also considered an agricultural pest for their ability to destroy fruit and vegetable crops.
  • Food: Stink bugs suck the juice from fruits and eat seed pods from a wide range of plants.
  • Where to look: Stink bugs breed in warm weather and need heat to live. Porch lights left on in the evening can attract, as well as light-colored houses or places where they can find sun exposure. In homes, they like to overwinter around cracks in windows and door frames. The can hibernate under siding and roof shingles, too, as well as in the attic, attic vents and crawl spaces.
  • Be aware: Stink bugs rarely bite and are not poisonous, but their smell is horrible. Do not crush the bugs if you find one in your home; instead, find a way to get it back outside.
