Meanwhile, I have to handle a  Halyomorpha halys  , errr,  Leptoglossus occidentalis  which is another gift from China.west of the Rockies. (update thanks to anon in the comments). I thought this was a "stink, stink bug" not just another "stink bug" since that has been the name tossed around by most people that are dealing with the infestation here in New Hampshire. I stand corrected as to the true entomology of said insect on my monitor.


These fuckers are everywhere this year.

    1. Ok. I’ll bite. What is it ? Everyone is dealing with these around here and calling them stinkbugs. I didn’t do research as I assumed that’s what they were. I am open to being educated. 😬

    2. Thousands here in Henniker, but at least they are not destroying squash and pumpkins.

  5. We have a bumper crop of a very similar bug here in Colorado. Looks the same, but with different coloration. Has like a red "V" on it's back.

  6. They, or their cousins, are here in the Pacific Northwest as well.
    In Utah they have the Box Elder bugs, in Eastern Washington we calls 'em stinkbugs. They're everywhere.

  7. We have Leaf-footed bugs around here. Little suckers kill Monarch caterpillars so I kill all I can.

  8. Similar to those, we have red-shoulder bugs here in OK. Colloquially, they’re known as “F&cking Bugs” here, for obvious reasons.

  9. They're prolific this year up in this corner of NH, too. I call 'em stinkbugs but yea, they're not the real SBs - ty for posting this, now I know, great site. These annoying little fkers and ladybugs weasel in the smallest spaces to get into the house in the fall. Seal up those cracks in the late summah!

  10. If you don't know what the brown marmorated stink bug looks like or smells like, and you live on the East Coast, then count your blessings. Most of us had to deal with them a couple years back, millions of them everywhere. Good news is, Praying Mantises will eat them right up. Last year's killer Asian import was the ash borer, which has already killed tens of millions of trees. This year it's the spotted lantern fly. Every year China sends us at least two new bugs, one of which has feet.

  11. Thanks for the research on these pests. I'm in NH too and have never seen so many of these #@^%$#& things. Hope to never again.

  12. They resemble the dreaded Kissing Bug of the American Southwest, which feed on blood and leave disease. Make sure they are not these things:

  14. Agreed, she has a great voice, excellent performance of the post-Peter Green* FM's stupidest and most overplayed song, "The Song With Two Notes". Best wishes to her.

    *Green passed away in July, 2020. RIP Peter.
