I have never seen one stink bug until this past eight months. I now see them on a daily basis in my Muirfield Village condo. Would you explain the why of this. Thank you.

When a stink bug finds a good place to overwinter the bug actually releases a pheromone that attracts other stink bugs. The bugs have found somewhere to over winter where you live.

I am attaching two links
The first provides control information and the second overall information about the stink bug.
