Brown Marmorated Stink Bug

Information on the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug That May Affect Your NY, NJ or CT Property

The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB), named for the production of an alarm pheromone when disturbed, is an invasive species introduced to Allentown, PA in the 1990s. This insect is approximately 3/4 of an inch long, has a 5-sided, shield-shaped body, and can be distinguished from native stinkbugs as having an alternating black and white pattern on wing margins and light-colored bands on the antennae. The BMSB feeds on plant juices with piercing/sucking mouthparts, thus damaging fruit and rendering apples, pears, peaches, etc. aesthetically unacceptable for sale. From September to November, BMSB seeks southwest-facing, light-colored structures such as rocks, homes or offices. Gaining access through tiny cracks and crevices, stink bugs can enter homes in large numbers to spend the winter. When ambient temperatures warm up in the spring, stink bugs emerge from their overwintering phase and leave homes from April to June.
