What are the black bugs that look like stink bugs that attack tomatoes! How can you get rid of them.

Welcome!

Do you have a photo of these black bugs?

They have suggestions for getting rid of it. If yours are like mine, they'll bite the crap out of you. Luckily, mine showed up after the harvest.

I'm glad I don't have those. The stink bugs are easily tapped off int a soapy tray and they die fast. I did that 6 weeks and seldom saw another the rest of the year.
