This is a Stink Bug and it looks similar to the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (see BugGuide), , a species that has gained notoriety and much publicity in North America since it is an invasive species introduced from Asia that has no significant predators to keep its population in check. It is multiplying rapidly and spreading its range in North America. The species is also significant as the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug enters homes to hibernate during cold weather. We are uncertain if it is native to India as BugGuide lists the range as: “Native to E. Asia.”
