Assassin bug vs. Stink bug

KevinMcdJuly 30, 2013

From what I have read on the web and seen, there are numerous types of elongated body stink bugs and assassin bugs. It is difficult to tell the difference between the two. From my experience the stink bug with the elongated body emits a sweet stench when handled.
Question 1: Can someone tell me if the assassin bug emits this same or similar stench?
Question 2: Would that be an easy way to tell the difference between the two?
Question 3: Does the adolescent stink bug emit this same stench?
Question 4: Does the stink up inject fluid into a tomato resulting in inedible fruit?
