Mature nymphs of the two spotted stink bug are about 8 to 9 mm long. Adults range in length from 10 to 12 mm. Nymphs may pale yellow or reddishorange with a distinct black "Y-shaped" marking on the pronotum and two black spots on the thorax.
This predator occurs throughout the Northwest and is a predator of the Colorado potato beetle. Occasionally this predator may provide control of the Colorado potato beetle, but it rarely occurs in large enough numbers to provide adequate control.
