The life cycle of a stink bug begins after the winter hibernation is over. Female stink bugs will emerge with nearly 150 eggs that they will carry until they find a place to lay them. The eggs are usually attached to the underside of a leaf, where the female believes they will be safe. Depending on weather and other conditions, the eggs will hatch anywhere from a few days to a few weeks after they are laid.
