Brown Marmorated Stinkbug
The brown marmorated stinkbug (BMSB), Halyomorpha halys, originally from East Asia, is an invasive pest that is present throughout much of the US. It is attracted to the outside of houses on warm fall days in search of overwintering sites and can enter houses in large numbers. The BMSB is also a serious economic threat to fruit crops, garden vegetables, and many ornamentals. (USDA).
