Nymphs of the southern green stink bug

6658.    Found these bugs, along with dozens more, all on spent anise hyssop flower heads in my garden. They do not move much. Haven’t been able to find any bug image on line that identifies it, so I do not know what to do … protect, or eliminate. Thank you in advance, Hanne J. Vancouver, B.C. Canada

    I’ve now read up on this particular bug and very much appreciate learning about this pest so I can take measures to protect plants in my garden, and those of my neighbours.
