You got one Lugnut. They are a pretty green and difficult to see on fresh green stems and leaves which is what they feed upon. They love beans and soy beans. Years back they would be really bad around agricultural areas within miles of bean fields.

Billions die during their necessity to hibernate. Some make it thru but many of the breeding hopeful pre emerging adults don't.That I think has contributed to their decline in the colder regions of the U. S..

Warmer states are still experiencing them or may be subject to a new invasion from repopulation to an area. Coastal areas with ship yards within a few hundred miles and heavy trucking traffic are most prone to re infestation.

Just another problem China sent to us.

Wild turkeys eat them, have killed turkeys in the fall with their craws full of them.

It is good to know that some wildlife is consuming them to help to keep them in check. Turkeys most likely don't have a taste aversion to them as many other animals do. Their defensive odor discharge is a stink bugs basic defense mechanism along with their color.
