Asian Lady Beetle
As Indian summer bathes the eastern United States, Asian Lady Beetles have begun looking for a winter home.
This Asian cousin of the benign, beloved ladybug has transformed domestic life in rural and suburban regions from Louisiana to Canada, intruding on the peace -- and the attics, curtains and nostrils -- of a significant swath of the nation.
Brown Marmorated Stink BugThe brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB), an insect not previously seen on our continent, was apparently accidentally introduced into eastern Pennsylvania. It was first collected in September of 1998 in Allentown, but probably arrived several years earlier.
As of January 2015, Halyomorpha halys has been recorded in 49 counties, although it is probable that they are in all counties:
It is also recorded from many other states such as:
California, Connecticut, Delaware, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia
