Bug off! N.H. sees invasion of western conifer seed bug

Many homeowners have reported what appears to be an invasion as the bugs with long legs and antennas search for openings to crawl inside warm homes to hang out for the winter months.

The western conifer seed bug can emit an odor when handled as a defense mechanism. Eaton said it’s in a family of insects closely related to the stink bug, but it isn’t really a stink bug.

While they first showed up in New England in the 1990s after arriving from western states, the western conifer seed bug’s seasonal invasion this fall has been more noticeable than in past years. | More at New Hampshire.com
