BDN interviews Dill about avoiding stink while removing western conifer

The Bangor Daily News interviewed Jim Dill, a pest management specialist with University of Maine Cooperative extension, about the western conifer, a stink bug relative, and how to remove it without triggering its release of foul odor. “If you squish one, it gives off an unpleasant chemical smell and if you disturb it in any way, it will give off that same smell as a defense,” Dill said. WGME (Channel 13 in Portland) shared the BDN story.
