brown marmorated stink bug

Last year was one of the worst years for the invasive pest known as the stink bug, and this year is going to be even worse, according to Michigan State University Entomologist Howard Russell, aka MSU’s Bugman.

“The one people are complaining about now is the brown marmorated stink bug, says Russell. “It showed up in Michigan for the first time around 2010. It was first found in southwest Michigan and ever since has been spreading throughout the Lower Peninsula.”
