SPARKS, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Say’s stink bug (Chlorochroa sayi) has invaded yards and fields across western Nevada, according to the Nevada Department of Agriculture.

The Department says citizens from Smith Valley, Douglas County, Carson City, the North Valleys of Reno and Pershing County have expressed concern about the bug.

The NDOA says that the insect usually does not feed on horticultural plants in yards and gardens. It prefers to feed on developing seeds and may occasionally feed on grain crops, various fruits and potatoes. Most over the counter products containing carbaryl or insecticidal soaps, registered for use in the yard, should control these insects.
