Definition of stinkbug

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

As the name suggests, these bugs emit an unpleasant (downright foul) odor when disturbed or smashed. They feed on a variety of fruits and vegetables, so if they are a nuisance, use row covers and traps to prevent an infestation, or insecticidal soap or traditional insecticides if they're already present.
