Many of us on the East Coast had encounters with the dreaded stink bug this summer. The green stink bug is one of the most damaging native stink bug species in the United States.
A new article in the Journal of Integrated Pest Management, “Biology and Management of the Green Stink Bug,” offers farmers and growers advice on how to deal with this insect pest. The authors describe the green stink bug’s life cycle, seasonal biology, host plants, and management options such as pheromone trapping, chemical control, cultural control, and biological control.
