Stink Bugs in Blueberry

Stink bugs are often more brightly colored with orange or red markings. Nymphs are wingless, although wing pads are apparent.

Stink bugs overwinter as adults in ditch banks, under boards or other similar materials.
They become active in spring when temperatures rise above 21 C (70 F).
Each female oviposits up to several hundred eggs.
Nymphs hatch and pass through five instars before becoming adults.
Approximately 4 to 5 weeks elapse between hatching and adult emergence.
