They are a greyish brown color, ¾ inches long with six legs. Their body is the shape of a shield or triangular shape. The stink bug received its name from the odor they release when disturbed or crushed. They feed on fruit and fruit leaves. These insects are not dangerous to humans but they are a major nuisance to have in your home.

If they can't find an appropriate spot outside, your house will do just fine.
