Here in Roanoke VA we are being invaded by these pesky stinky bugs. They are sucking the buds of my roses, on my tomatoes and peppers doing the same. I have tried Sevin dust (but not on the "flowers" to save the bees), Isotox on the roses, a natural organic flying insect killer, and a regular flying insect killer. I have also used Bayer systemic flower food. Nothing seems to phase these guys. I am having the house exterior sprayed next week, to discourage them coming inside, but other than picking them off the roses, does anyone have any ideas?
