Stinkbug Damage

This is the first year I have notice a major problem with these guys. I always saw a few in the last ten years or so, but never tens of them on one plant. Almost every fruit I have picked has had damage. The only tomatos they don't seem to bother are the Cherokee Purple and one San Marzano plant with yellowish fruits.

Is there anything out there I can spray to kill them?

Look on the leaves for red eggs then destroy them!! I think severin dust will work! I am having the same problem. Alo pull out the dead plants before more hatch and get rid of the dead vines!

Before you start using Sevin do yourself a favor and look up how bad that stuff is.
