Latest Wisconsin Pest: Brown Marmorated Stink Bug

The hits just keep coming, in the form of more unwelcomed six-legged visitors whose real home is across the seas.

 

A tide of invasive species has washed over our Harbor Heights neighborhood Pewaukee and Wisconsin in the past two decades: the emerald ash borer and gypsy moth to name a few. All are innate to foreign countries. All have caused environmental and economic havoc in the U.S., where no natural predators exist to control them.

 

The latest invader winging its way here will literally make a smell.

 

The brown marmorated stink bug is ¾-inch long, with a wide back side that tapers to a point, and a rectangular head with long antennae. Native to China and east Asia, the insect has been traveling west since being first discovered in Pennsylvania in 2001.

 

Its name is well-earned. When disturbed or stepped on, the brown marmorated stink bug emits an awful, overpowering you'd invite into your Harbor Heights home, right?

 

Fortunately, the brown marmorated insect hasn't arrived in great numbers in Harbor Heights or WI. Stink bug control isn't much of an issue yet. Yet it's only a matter of time.

 

Farmers abhor them for more than their smell. The stink bug feast on tree fruits, vegetables, sweet corn and soybeans. Mid-Atlantic apple growers sustained an estimated $37 million in crop losses in 2010 to marmorated stink bugs.

 

The Asian invasive has a relative that is native to the U.S. The brown stink bug looks a lot like the brown marmorated version, except the colors of their undersides are different. We somehow doubt you'll get that far identifying them, though.

 

Brown marmorated stink bugs like to winter inside Harbor Heights your house. If you step on one, you'll figure it out quickly. The nose knows. If you see more in your Harbor Heights house or yard, don't crush them – contact The Mosquito Guy to address their presence in a safe, non-stinky fashion.  Unlike these insects, we'll never stink up your joint.
