The Scoop on Stink Bugs
Stink bugs were first spotted in the U.S. in Allentown, PA. Since then, the invasive species has spread to 42 states and two Canadian provinces.
Stink bugs are aptly named, referring to the defensive scent glands located on the underbelly of the insects. When frightened or smashed, the bugs release a foul smell.
