We have carefully inspected the attached image from corner to corner, scrutinizing all points in between, and try as we might, we are unable to find any Stink Bud or Stink Bug for that matter. We suspect you may be inquiring about the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, Halyomorpha halys, an invasive, introduced species that is becoming a major agricultural pest and general nuisance in much of North America. We do not provide extermination advice. You may find some helpful information on the Penn State Entomology site as well as numerous other resources on the internet.
Yes thank you for your answer. That looks like the bug my sister has. Very stinky if you squish them. They will hide anywhere so they came back to Long Island last fall in my suitcase lining and clothing I had packed up the day before I left. Love your site, made my day Saturday!!!
