Do Stink Bugs Fly?

Stink Bug Illustration

There are approximately 200 species of stink bugs in North America so some of the information presented here may not be completely accurate for all stink bug species, but will generally apply to many of them.

Do Stink Bugs Have Wings?

Adult stink bugs have two pairs of wings and are fully capable of taking flight.

The wings located near their heads are rough, hard and may occasionally appear to have a leathery texture. This set of wings serves as a protective cover for their interior set, which are membranous and employed when the insect takes flight.

Why Do Stink Bugs Fly?

Flight is an important method of travel for stink bugs as they often utilize this talent to search for mates, food sources and shelter.
