Have you ever questioned where the name “stink bug” originates? The stink bug has a scent gland that is on its abdomen’s top. They are typically known for the foul smell that they make. Stink bugs feed on the sap produced from crops and plants.
Adult stink bugs are smaller than one inch in length. They have different colors of brown on both the bottom and top surfaces. The body shape is like a shield. The eggs of stink bugs are a shaped like a barrel that is a yellow-red color.
The female will deposit these eggs in leaves, about 25 eggs at a time. Stink bugs go through five stages before they get to adulthood. The eggs will hatch around five days after being deposited.
In New York, the stink bug creates one generation per year based on the environment and temperatures. However, it is not unusual during warmer months for stink bugs to produce two or three generations a year. It all depends on how warm the temps are and how long they last.
During late spring, adult stink bugs will begin to appear. Mating will start, and the females will begin depositing her eggs on the leaves. Adult stink bugs will begin the practice of finding sites to stay during the wintertime.
Gaps around electrical outlets, air conditioner pipes, ceiling fans, ceiling light fixtures, skylights, window frames, and weep holes are all possible entry sites.
