Can you identify this bug? I’d like to know what it is.
Introduced from Asia, the Lablab Bug or Kudzu Bug, Megacopta cribraria, has become quite a nuisance in the South because of its large populations and because it is known to enter homes to hibernate. According to BugGuide: “may invade homes in large numbers and become a household pest(1); highly invasive species of mixed impact: it seems to prefer kudzu (a highly invasive and damaging plant), but can also become a serious pest of leguminous crops.”
