The stink bug was accidently introduced to the U.S. and gained notoriety from its rapid spread in the country. It is known for damaging crops, as well as its ability to release a foul odor when disturbed or when crushed. Stink bugs are grayish brown with triangular bodies that resemble a shield. They are of an inch in length, with six legs, and antennae. They have been found in the eastern half of the U.S., as well as California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.
Stink bugs can be prevented from invading your home by sealing potential exterior points of entry. To treat stink bugs, use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of them and quickly dispose of the bag.
