Stink bug

7164.        This bug woke me up as i was sleeping in my bed. it was on the back of my shoulder. I squished it with the paper towel it now is on. Is it a stink bug or a kissing bug? Thanks. Surrey, British Columbia. Canada

Number 7164. This is a stink bug, Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Pentatomidae. If there are white bands on its antennae (I cannot tell for certain rom your images), it likely is a brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys, an introduced species that has become a pest, primarily in orchards, in many areas of North America. They will come indoors in search for shelter, but do no harm there. Stink Bug detailed information

    Thank you so much! Yes it did have white bands on its antennae. I was confused because I could not smell anything. I’m glad it was a stink bug and not a kissing one. Thanks again.
