Long-legged and mainly nocturnal, these true bugs are stubborn pests that favor cucurbits. Both adults and nymphs suck sap from stems and leaf undersides. The 1/2 inch long, shield shaped adults are yellowish to black, while the smaller, tear-shaped nymphs are yellowish green with red heads. Squash bugs stink when crushed.
