Truly Nolen | Youngstown & Warren, OH | Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Control

Brown marmorated stink bugs are an invasive pest species that target crops and plants, often causing significant damage.  Crops and plants particularly at risk include apples, pears, nectarines, peaches, sweet corn, and tomatoes.  While they are a major economic concern for farming communities, they are also considered a nuisance pest in residential areas.  In residential areas, they can be found in fruit bearing areas, like small backyard gardens, fig trees, and in & around fallen leaves.

They are often attracted to the outside of homes when searching for a sheltered, protected place to overwinter.  Sometimes, they can enter houses in large numbers, which can cause panic for homeowners.  This pest is most active in the spring, when they emerge from their overwinter location to reproduce.


  • Size: 0.6 inches long
  • Color: Various shades of brown on both upper and lower body often fading to gray on the wings
  • Appearance: The brown marmorated stink bug has a classic shield-like shape and is nearly as wide as it is long


Much like other species of stink bugs, the brown marmorated stink bug has a classic shield shape.  They are distinguishable from other stink bugs by lighter bands of color on the antenna and darker bands of color on the overlapping parts of their wings.  They earned the name stink bug due to scent glands located on the surface of their abdomen and the underside of their thorax.  A distinct smell is often noticed when the brown marmorated stink bug is threaten, disturbed, or crushed.
