Stink bug nymph

Stink bug nymph

6116    My name is Sonja and this little guy was on my lawn furniture this morning. Never seen anything like it before. Location is  Simcoe County Ontario. It is Aug. 2017, cool out 13°C, rained last night, we live in a maple bush.  Thanks.

This is a nymph of a stink bug (Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Pentatomidae); it appears to be a green stink bug, Chinavia hilaris – see https://tinyurl.com/yb6ptpsj for an image. This species can be a garden/orchard pest; see https://tinyurl.com/yaks7dbm for more information. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
