They were introduced to the US to eat aphids, but now they are everywhere! The bad thing is, they stink where they are threatened or killed!

We have ladybugs which is why I've been wondering "why the heck was introducing stinkbugs even considered?"

I thought most ladybugs in North america were wiped out by Asian Lady beetles or whatever? (the one without the spots)
