Is this a true or stink bug?
December 30, 2009
We found this dead bug in our warehouse a couple of weeks ago. Then we found your website today and spent most of the afternoon going thru submitted pics and responses. What a way to spend a quite afternoon at work!
Handly Working, Dave

Tree Stink Bug

Tree Stink Bug

Dear Dave,
We can’t help but wonder if you were handily working, or hardly working.  This is a Tree Stink Bug in the genus Brochymena.  They often seek shelter indoors when cold weather approaches and they will not damage the home, its furnishing, nor the inhabitants.  As a point of clarification, all Stink Bugs are True Bugs, but not all True Bugs are Stink Bugs.
