  • Ah, pew! Staying ahead of stink bugs

    By Tom Woods
    Master Gardener
    Stink bugs and their cousins, the leaf-footed bugs, are common pests on many fruits and vegetables in the southeast.
    Gardeners most frequently notice these pests on tomatoes, where their feeding injury causes hard yellow spots to form just under the tomato skin. Populations of both of these difficult-to-control insects build up over the season, peaking in late summer and early fall. Control efforts taken now will help you stay ahead of these malodorous pests.
