The brown marmorated stink bug is an invasive species that arrived in the U.S. from Asia in 1996. It has become an increasing problem ever since. Stink bugs release a foul odor when they are disturbed or crushed. They can be a big problem in your garden, where they feed on fruits, leaves and stems of your plants. They can invade your home looking for a safe place to overwinter as temperatures cool.
