What Do Stink Bugs Look Like?

Many homeowners may wonder what attracts these pests to their living spaces. The key lies in understanding their behavior and life cycle. At Quest Termite & Pest, we can quickly identify and manage stink bugs for you. Here are some distinguishing features that set them apart:

  • Size and shape: BMSBs are about 5/8 inches long and have a shield-like shape.
  • Coloration: Their backs display a unique marbled or mottled brown coloring.
  • Antennae and legs: Their antennae and legs may have white banding.
  • Body parts: Alternating dark and light bands mark the edge of their abdomen.
  • Odor: BMSBs release a distinct citrus odor when disturbed or crushed.

To control pests, you must understand their characteristics and hire professionals for treatment.
