Beneficial Stink Bugs

Asked October 23, 2018, 11:30 PM EDT

Hi - I know about the brown marmorated stink bug and how to identify them. Can you direct me to images of native species stink bugs? I do not want to kill those. Thanks

Thank you for your question about native stink bugs. Unfortunately, just because a stink bug is native does not guarantee that it is beneficial.

"Stink Bugs of Oregon" (from the Oregon Department of Agriculture) illustrates and briefly describes the significant stink bugs in Oregon - https://www.oregon.gov/ODA/shared/Documents/Publications/IPPM/StinkBugGuide.pdf.
