There are many varieties of the stink bug. Most are an olive green and black, although some are brightly colored but all are shield shaped insects.
The stink bug gets their name because if you crush them they give off a strong scent. That odor is a chemical defense that they produce in glands on their abdomen.
The bugs are three-fourths of an inch in length, which sucks the sap from the underside of the leaves, causing them to wilt and die.
