Stink bugs Shield bugs

Stink is such a yucky word. It conjures up notions of rotten eggs, poop, and a whole host of other undesirable odors. And I've decided that these stink bugs are just too nice looking to be associated with the concept of stink. Not to mention that they really aren't all that smelly, at least not to me.

Luckily, I have found that these bugs also have another common name: shield bugs, referring to the characteristic shield shape of the adults. So from now on, I will refer to them as shield bugs.
