Stink Bug Invasion

Horticulture researchers Chris Hedstrom and Nik Wiman help us tell our stink bugs apart.

There are stink bugs, and then there are stink bugs.  Our region is home to a native variety, but a foreign interloper concerns insect researchers.  The non-native stink bugs could eventually reproduce in great numbers, causing problems for homes and agriculture.  Oregon State University horticulturists are working on the issue.
