What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

what’s this bug?
Bugman,
My son found this stick like bug hiding behind the gutter. He coaxed it out and onto a stick. You can see how long it is. I would say it was about 5 inches in length from head to tail. When we poked with a stick or moved the stick it was on too much, the bug would emit a smoke from its back. It smelled bad. Can you identify it?

Hi Dan,
If the noxious spray secreted by the Two Striped Walkingstick gets in your eye, you might be in for a stinging surprise.
