Stink Bugs

Stink bugs belong to the Pentatomidae family of insects and are also known as "stink bug" or "shield bugs" (because all adult stink bugs are shield-shaped). They derive their name from their tendency to eject an extremely foul and strong smelling fluid from their thorax when disturbed, handled, injured, squashed or threatened.  

Even though they look menacing, stink bugs do not bite or sting people, and will not cause structural damage to properties. To homeowners, stink bugs are considered a major nuisance pest, as they enter homes in large numbers when the weather begins to cool, seeking heat and warmth to survive over winter.

Stink bugs are considered an agricultural pest to commercial farmers due to the huge losses they incur in the produce industry every year, especially growers of apples, peaches, and pears.
