Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

Upon being donated, the Stinkbug can be found in the room of the bug exhibit with the light in, resting on a tree near the light.

"Stinkbugs are known for their foul smell, enough to drive away most predators and people. The smell is so strong that if they release it in an airtight place, they pass out from their own smell. They like to gather in clumps to stay warm in sunshine, though they will seek out warm houses as well."

In New Horizons[edit]

"I daresay the name says it all... Stinkbugs are known for their stench. Hoo! Peeyew! As it happens, these crop-eating pests use straw-like mouths to pierce plants and drink the juices. And when threatened, they use a smelly chemical in their belly to release their odious odor! Hoo! How DO they live with themselves?""
