Brown marmorated stink bugs are common overwintering pests found in Chicago, Illinois. These invasive pests are native to Asia, but they reside in the United States and Canada. They’re called stink bugs because they release a terrible odor from the tiny glands near their thorax. When they’re crushed, handled, or scared, they’ll release this odor to defend themselves. The first stink bugs in America were found in Allentown, Pennsylvania in the mid-1990s. Today, they’re in most states including Illinois. They can reach three-quarters of an inch. Stinkbugs are brown or gray with a triangular back.
