Stink bugs are small, shield-shaped bugs that typically live up to their name and emit an unpleasant odor when disrupted. Green and southern green stink bugs are bright green and measure 14.0 to 19.0 mm long. The major body regions of the green stink bug are bordered by a narrow, orange-yellow line. Brown stink bugs are dull brownish-yellow in color and 12.0 to 15.0 mm long (or roughly half an inch long). Stink bugs have some natural enemies, including several common species of birds. The family that includes stink bugs and shield bugs is called Pentatomidae. Its eggs are elliptical (1.6 x 1.3 mm), yellow-red color with tiny spines forming fine lines. Its antennae are 5-segmented, which gives the family its scientific name. The stink bugs' wing covers look like shields. The actual odor that emits from stink bugs consist of cyanide compounds with a rotten almond scent. It is called autohaemorrhaging, and is a form of antipredator adaptation.
The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (Halyomorpha halys) is an invasive species from Asia that is known for eating crops and infesting U.S. homes. It has wings to fly, is resistant to insecticides, and posts a threat to agriculture and is a nuisance for homeowners. These stink bugs are a relentless threat to cotton, corn, soybeans, native and ornamental trees, shrubs, vines, weeds, and many cultivated crops. The idiomatic term stink bug is also applied to distantly related species such as Boisea trivittata, the boxelder bug, and the Eleodes sp., the pinacate beetles.
Many stink bugs and shield bugs are considered agricultural pest insects, because they can create large populations; they suck plant juices and damage crop production, and they are resistant to many pesticides. However, some genera of Pentatomidae are considered highly beneficial; the anchor bug, which can be distinguished by the red-orange anchor shape on the adult, is one example. It is a predator of other insects, especially Mexican bean beetles, Japanese beetles, and other pest insects.
In the British Isles there are 33 species of shield bugs belonging to the super-family Pentatomoidea, 32 of which are native and 1 which is considered to be newly naturalised. Of these 32 species, 17 belong in the family Pentatomidae. Stink bugs hibernate in the winter.
