stink bugs

woodsforchloeMarch 28, 2008

I had two new entries to my house this december. One was a summer begonia plant from a friend who was moving and a cut christmas tree from the cambridge area. I moved the begonia downstairs and never saw a bug in that room, but found several around the tree in the livingroom. Just today I found another. Has anyone else who brought home a fresh cut tree have this bug? Also I heard they do not reproduce inside?

Notwithstanding the occasional "Eek!", they are harmless.

And no, they do not reproduce in the house. There is a species of stink bug that inhabits conifers, so I am not surprised that it hitched a ride with a Christmas tree.
