True Bugs: Brown Marmorated Stink Bug
Here is a link to read more about this bug that we found in our kitchen. The photos are a little unclear since I took them through the top and bottom of the plastic magnifying container that we have for observation of bugs. You get the idea though of what he looks like. We think that he came in on some fruit or veggies or flowers from the garden and was a little lost inside the kitchen. We took him back outdoors when we were finished studying him.
Brown Marmorated Stink Bug
From page 297 of the Handbook of Nature Study:
"It must be remembered that while many people refer to all insects as bugs, the term bug is correctly applied only to one group of insects. This group includes such forms as stinkbugs, squash bugs, plant lice, and tree hoppers."
