Stink Bug

This arthropod is a green stink bug I found in Erika’s garden—I am not sure of the exact species. I did learn a new word—polyphagus. This word means that it eats a lot of stuff, but is not quite omnivorous, which would mean it eats anything. This bug can be a pest on many vegetables and fruits. The silver lining with stink bugs is that birds toads, spiders and other insects prey upon them. Green stink bugs are found across most of the United States and Canada. I did not pick up this stink bug, thus I can not report to you how it smells.
