Stink bugs get their name from the "stink" that they release as a natural defense against predators. If you have ever handled a stink bug you probably know the smell!
Stink bugs are particularly destructive in the garden, feeding mainly on tomatoes, berries, peppers, and apples.
They will find their way into homes through cracks and crevices early in the spring and when fall evenings start to turn cold. You will recognize them by their shield shaped body which measures about 1/2 inch long.
