What are stink bugs?

Stink bugs, officially known as the brown marmorated stink bug, belong to the scientific family of Pentatomidae. They are an invasive species, thought to have been accidentally brought to the United States from Asia in the 1990s. Stink bugs are easily recognizable for the shield shape of their body, their brown coloring with white-colored marmorated patterning, and dark bands along the sides of their abdomen. Stink bugs have six legs and a pair of antennae, and grow to be around 3/4 of an inch long.

Are stink bugs dangerous?

A stink bug invasion, while not known to bring bacteria, pathogens, or illnesses to human properties, is problematic to encounter. Stink bugs release an unpleasant odor when threatened or handled, and this odor may quickly fill your property if you are dealing with a widespread infestation of this pest. The stink bug odor smells similar to cilantro, burnt tires, or skunk smell, and stink bug odors often attract more of this pest to your property.

It’s important to note that handling stink bugs directly may result in this unpleasant chemical on your hand, something that could cause an itchy allergic reaction.
