Tomato Diseases & Pests

Stink Bug


Stink bugs feed on tomato fruit and can be a problem on whole-pack tomatoes where damage prevents peeling of the tomato. The pest overwinters as adults and has 1- 2 generations each year. Adults are brown or green and shield-shaped, about 1.3- 1.9 cm (1/2 - 3/4 in.) long. Nymphs are smaller, rounded, wingless and may be a different colour than the adult.
