New webpage to focus on organic management of brown marmorated stink bugs
The new site will report about ongoing efforts to develop organic management plans for this new invasive pest.
The Organic Pest Management Laboratory at Michigan State University has initiated a new webpage focusing on the organic management of the invasive brown marmorated stink bug (Halyomorpha halys). This pest has only recently been detected in Michigan but has been causing serious crop losses in fruit, vegetable, field, and ornamental crops in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia. It has also become a serious nuisance pest in these states due to its tendency to invade homes and other buildings in the fall.
