We have been asked to report any sightings of a specific stink bug, the brown marmorated stink bug. I knew there was a distinguishing feature but could not remember what it was so I looked it up. The distinguishing feature is that the joints of the segments on the antennae are white. Luckily then, this was not a specimen. They can cause widespread damage to fruit and vegetable crops and loves soybeans, planted this year, right beside my apple trees.
