Brown marmorated stink bugs are household pests that are native to Asia. These pests were first found in Allentown, Pennsylvania in the mid-90s. Since then, they’ve become problematic across the United States. They’re commonly found in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Maryland, and Washington DC. They range in size from half an inch to three-quarters of an inch. They’re either gray or brown.
Bedbugs tend to invade homes because they’re overwintering pests. Before winter arrives, they’re going to enter residences so they can stay warm. When the temperatures rise outside, they’re going to return outside. As they try to leave your home, you’ll see them. When they stay outside, they consume plants, fruits, and vegetables.
