New Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Video from NE-IPM Center

By: Chris Gonzales, Northeastern IPM Center

“Tracking the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug,” a new web video produced by the Northeastern IPM Center, shows growers and others how to identify the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB), why this pest is important in agriculture, and what’s at stake if we don’t stop it. A team of 50 scientists is working toward sustainable solutions, and our outreach team is producing this video series to showcase the group’s work. (This week their work was picked up by the  Diane Rehm show on WAMU and NPR!)

Today we launch the next episode in the video series about BMSB: Overwintering and Spread. In this segment scientists try to determine how far and how quickly BMSB might spread into agricultural production areas.
