As the fall air turns cold, swarms of brown marmorated stink bugs are ready to crawl from woods and fields — especially in the Mid-Atlantic region, including Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Delaware — in search of a warm spot to spend the winter, and any house will do, the Washington Post reports.
