Stink bugs are typically about a half an inch long and are a mottled brown color. They are characterized by their shield-shaped bodies and the odor they emit when threatened or crushed.
Stink bugs are not threatening to humans, but they can be a nuisance by damaging gardens and ornamental plants. They are common home invaders, with large numbers slipping through cracks around entry points—particularly during the fall. These insects release an unpleasant odor when they are threatened, and their foul smell can worsen when they are crushed.
