Green stink bugs are 3/4" long and green with yellowish edges. When they are nymphs, they are very colorful (pictured). Their bodies are flat and shield-like.
Habitat & Range
Green stink bugs live in fields across much of the US, Mexico, and Southern Canada.
When disturbed, they can release a foul odor. They walk slowly, and are able to fly. They feed off of plant sap.
Their eggs are barrel-shaped and are laid on the underside of leaves in rows. Nymphs are very colorful with black, green, and orange colors.
