An immature stinkbug is called a Nymph. It is yellow and red in colour. It has red eyes. As it matures, its yellow body will become off-white. The average brown marmorated stinkbug’s size is between 12 and 17 mm when it reaches adulthood. Stink bugs can be nearly twice as large as they are long. The adult is a brown colour with lighter bands around the antennae than the front wings.

Each summer, adult stink bugs seek a place to call home during winter. They gather on the exterior of buildings during the summer and move inwards when winter arrives through any crack or open they can find. They spend the winter hiding in walls, crawl spaces, and attics. They will then crawl into your living space when spring arrives. Once they are inside, they will gather around windows and walls in search of a way out.
