Asian Stink Bugs Could Cause Problems

A new variety of Stink Bug from East Asia is making an appearance in the United States.  Valery Tate with the University of Missouri Extension says it is a pest only occasionally seen in Missouri, but it is causing an Agricultural problem in the mid-Atlantic states.

Tate says the bug can travel up to 30 miles.

She says when the bug is disturbed or crushed, it emits a foul odor.
