Stink bugs, also called the brown marmorated stink bug, are a species of insect that comes from Eastern Asia. In the United States, it is considered an invasive species or a pest of foreign origin. You can identify a stink bug by a few distinct characteristics. They are large, oval-shaped insects or sometimes described as shield-shaped. Adult stink bugs can reach a size of nearly 2 cm long and wide. The bugs appear even larger because their legs extend off of the sides of the body. Adult stink bugs are great at flying and fold their wings on top of their body when they are on land. The biggest way to identify them is if they give off an unpleasant odor when they are killed or disturbed.
