Stink bug young instars
When bugs newly hatched from eggs as 1st instars, they usually stay around their eggs cases. In general, the 1st instars nymph do not feed. They spend some time ingesting bacteria which the female deposited on the eggs when she laid them. The bug have to liquefy the food with saliva first before they can feed on it.
The principal differences between various instars and between nymph and adults lie in the development of the wings and in some case the number of antennal segments. The beginning of the wings development start in the 3rd instars. The wing-buds are fully seen in the 5th instars. Almost all nymphs have four antennal segment in early instars stages. If the adult has the 5th segment, the second antennal segment of the nymph divides into two in the 4th or 5th instars stage. Ocelli are only seen in the 5th instars if the adult has.
