Latest Wisconsin Insect: Brown Marmorated Stink Bug

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

 

A tide of persistent insects has washed over our Ives Grove neighborhood Pewaukee and Wisconsin in the past two decades: the Japanese beetle and gypsy moth to name a few. All are innate to foreign countries. All have caused environmental and economic mayhem in the United States, where no natural predators exist to control them.

 

The most recent invader winging its way here will literally make a stink.

 

The brown marmorated insect 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 journeying west since being first discovered in Pennsylvania in 2001.

 

Its name is well-deserved. When smushed or stepped on, the brown marmorated stink bug emits an awful, overpowering you'd invite into your Ives Grove house, right?

 

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

 

Farmers dislike them for more than their odor. The insects feed 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 insect 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 Ives Grove your house. If you smush one, you'll figure it out quickly. The nose knows. If you see more in your Ives Grove home or yard, don't step on them – contact The Mosquito Guy to address their presence in a safe, non-smelly fashion.  Unlike these bugs, we'll never stink up your joint.
