I keep finding this bug inside my home. I live in Michigan, USA and it’s currently January. I found this lovely creature hanging out in my bedroom this morning. I tried googling various combinations and couldn’t find a thing- any thoughts on his/her name? Also, I am pretty sure it can fly or semi-fly, but it doesn’t do it often–mostly walks.
Good day! 🙂
As the range of the invasive, exotic, Brown Marmorated Stink Bug expands to include much of the western, eastern and midwestern portions of North America (See BugGuide), the identification requests we receive get more plentiful, especially during the cooler months when it seeks shelter indoors to hibernate over the winter. It is generally expected that as populations of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug increase, it will become a significant threat to our agricultural business as it is such a general feeder.
Thank you soo much for your speedy response and figuring out which bug has been visiting me! 🙂 It means a lot to me and you guys rock!!! 🙂
Keep up the great work and making bugs more loveable!
