I found these guys recently hatched on one of my flower pots. I can’t for the life of figure out what they are. Closest I came was finding a post on Flickr from a few years ago in Blue Springs Missouri wondering about the same type of bug. I’m in the Pacific Northwest.
Can you tell me what they are?
These are not beetles. They are newly hatched Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs and this invasive, exotic species is spreading across North America. Normally, we do not endorse extermination, but this policy does not extend to invasive, exotic species. Squash them before they spread.
