Aggressive as kudzu and nasty as stinkbugs
You know kudzu, that invasive vine driven by heat and humidity to devour whole communities. Now meet the kudzu bug.
The small, flying bugs are as wide as long, resembling yellowish brown or olive-green ladybugs with many small, darker brown spots and ruby-red eyes.
Vine and bug grew up together in Asia. This summer the creatures, aka brown ladybugs — are on the rise in Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, Prince Georges and St. Mary’s counties.
