Shieldbug's can also be called Stinkbugs and for good reason.
They feed by sucking sap from a wide range of plants but do not cause much damage to cultivated plants. They overwinter as adults but before seeking shelter they are seen in late summer and autumn sitting on plant foliage in the sun. They can also be seen in early summer, when they lay small clusters of eggs on the undersides of leaves.
