Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Videos Available

Researchers and growers explain management methods for BMSB such as insecticides, trap cropping, physical barriers, and organic and biological control techniques—in a new video.

The video is the latest installment in the “Tracking the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug” series (9 parts) produced by the Northeastern Integrated Pest Management Center at Cornell University. Earlier videos explain history and identification, overwintering and spread, monitoring and mapping, and host plants and damage.

BMSB, recently found in Sacramento, California, has been detected in 40 other states plus Ontario, posing severe agricultural and nuisance problems in six states. The insect threatens an estimated $21 billion worth of crops in the United States alone.
