While stink bugs are commonly known for their smell, they are also destructive pests. Though commonly herbivores, they can be predatory as well. They appear yellow-paling-into-white in their nymph stage, adult stink bugs are commonly brown, with a shield-shaped body.
Most commonly, stink bugs will feed on fruit and vegetables, which is how they enter most premises, carried on produce brought into the kitchen. This makes them rarely sighted in areas that don’t include food preparation, though it’s not impossible. These pests are most common during fall, as they begin to head indoors to escape the cold of winter.
The most common way to detect a stink bug infestation is by the smell, although the bugs will gather near windows and doors as well.
