COMMON GREEN SHIELD BUG

Updated: Dec 9, 2020


A native, sap-sucking insect that derives its name from its distinctive shape. They are no threat to plants. There are more than 30 species of shield bug in Britain, most of them brown. In the US they are known as "Stink Bugs" due to the unpleasant odour they use as a defence.
