Stink bugs are found throughout the world and are pests of many crops. In the United States and Canada, plant-feeding stink bugs are most often associated with soybean, corn, tobacco, peaches, crucifers, tomatoes, small grains, red clover and cotton. They can also be found feeding on many weed species.
Stink bug damage in corn has been a recognized problem since the 1980s. Most often only a very small percentage of fields in an area are affected by these insects – usually fields associated with heavy residue.
