Stink Bugs in Blueberry


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

Facts:
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.
