What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

White Stink Bug?

Alright so I know there are many different species of insects but a White Stink Bug with Red markings… While I was frolicking through the forest in Central, PA I found this awesome insect. I’ve done some research but have not found a name or answer to what this bug is. It is exactly the size of a stink bug but its white, with red markings. Maybe an Albino? I don’t know, so I’ll leave it up to you.

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, freshly metamorphosed

Hi Jeremy,
Based on the striped antennae, our gut instinct is that this is a light Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, an invasive species that has gotten a foothold in Maryland and Pennsylvania.  Perhaps it is a light individual, or perhaps it is freshly metamorphosed and it has not darkened yet.  Sure enough, we found a visual match on BugGuide.

    I live in a little town called Souderton in Montgomery county Pa. I found a white stink bug with red spots just like the one pictured above from Lebanon county Pa. I have seen plenty of stink bugs across the country but never a white one. I don’t know how to upload pictures for you to see but as I said it is identical to the one posted on your website–What’s that bug. Just thought I would let you know there is another one in Pa. I guess if there is one there are two and if there are two, well you get my point. I’m sure there are more some where. Maybe even outside where I live. Thank you for your time—-Chuck—-

    I’m in East Tennessee and I saw one of these in my Garden on a pepper plant yesterday, it is an albino stink bug, and I know this to be a fact since there was also dozens of brown ones in my garden too.
