What is a stink bug?
Stink bugs are considered to be agricultural pest insects that are reproducing and traveling at alarming rates. They reproduce large populations and usually reside in warm places, like homes. Stink bugs are enemies for croppers because they damage crop population, suck out the plant juices, and ultimately are resistant to most pesticides making them virtually terrors.
Although they are hated by many they do serve a purpose. One of the major benefits of a stink bug is that it is a predator for other unwanted insects, such as, Mexican Bean Beetles, Japanese Beetles, and many others.

Why is it called a stink bug?
It is called a stink bug because of the odor it emits. When a stink bug is disturbed, feels threatened, or is crushed it ejects a very foul odor that smells similar to a skunk's scent.
