The video at the bottom of this article features six Southern Green Stink Bug nymphs following each other around in a cute little choreographed dance.  

The Colorful Culprits

The nymphs are light yellowish in color with red eyes and transparent legs and antennae. The time until the next molt is three days. Feeding begins with the second instar. The second instar has black legs, head, thorax, and antennae.

A Stink-tacular Surprise

Don't let their cuteness fool you – these nymphs are packing a stinky secret. When threatened or disturbed, they release a pungent odor that's sure to keep predators at bay. It's their way of saying, "Back off, we've got defenses!"  

What Can You Do?

If you happen to come across these Southern Green Stink Bug nymphs in your neck of the woods, don't be too quick to squish them! While they might be a bit of a nuisance for plants, they're also fascinating creatures that contribute to the ecosystem. Observe from a distance, snap a few photos, and appreciate the wonders of the natural world.
