What does the green stink bug eat?

Plant juices and seeds are what the green stink bug (Acrosternum hilare or Chinavia hilaris) eat.

Specifically, the green stink bug has needle-like, piercing, sucking mouthparts. It therefore is easy for the bug to remove the juices from field, garden, and orchard plants. It also is no problem for the bug to feed on seeds, particularly of such edibles as beans, corn, eggplant, and peas. The bug will consider as additional food sources leaves and stems of trees, particularly in citrus gardens and orchards.
