Could you give a quick lesson on the various shield bugs? I am really confused after searching to find the differences among your green shield bug, squash bugs, and stink bugs. My eyes are crossing.


Yeah right - I just googled "stink bug look alike" 9after having looked in my handy Audubon bug guide) and found the Gardensafari website I scrolled down until I found the bug that looked like mine. Read a little on it, and on the more common green shield bugs, and voila - there was my diagnosis.

Just looking at that website, it looks like shield bugs are in the family of stink bugs. But squash bugs are in a different family.
