Hi Vic! Now that Rex has taken the time to identify this for you please can you add the common & scientific names in edit so this can come off of the unidentified list. Thanks!

I agree with argybee, maybe keep them for a while. Their adult forms or maybe some later instars of those bugs would make a clearer ID.

@Vic... I hope Little Rex is wrong with his suggested ID but just in case maybe you should contain those bugs if possible until an accurate ID is made. His suggestion looks awfully close and 'Shell Harbour' is a potential entry point for pests. Have a look at this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Brown_... and compare to your pic#3.

Ooh... Well, at least they're not there. They look like quite a pest in the areas that have them. Oh well, my bad :3 Still, great photos! I can't help smiling back at those gleeful looking eggs! :D

@Little Rex... the "Brown Marmorated stink bug" is not in Australia. We are certainly worried about it getting here and guard carefully against that happening. I think you have got very close with your ID but not quite right.
