Website for news and information against the BMSB






    This is a website of a team of more than 50 researchers at 10 institutions across the United States with the goal to to form a defense against the invasive pest brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB).  

   They are working to find management solutions for growers, seeking strategies that will protect our food, our environment, and our farms.  

   The  funding is from USDA’s Specialty Crop Research Initiative and the University of Maryland participates actively to the research.

  1. Stink bugs do have predators in their native habitat. The warm climate and the abundance of food supply is not helping the situation. Maybe if we can find use for these stink bugs such as promoting them as fine jewelry...!How about painting colors on the hard shell, using crystals to decorate it ...there have to be a market value for these bugs!!! :)
