Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs Webinar

Join eOrganic for a webinar by Anne Nielsen of Rutgers University on Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs. Register at http://www.extension.org/pages/67200

About the Webinar

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug is a highly pervasive pest that can cause severe losses for both conventional and organic growers in a wide variety of crops. This webinar will cover background information on BMSB biology and population ecology including identification and distribution. It will include a preliminary discussion of management tactics that are amenable to organic production systems including organic insecticides and biological control; however, this webinar will be primarily about the biology of the insect and future webinars will discuss management in more detail. A recently funded USDA OREI project led by Rutgers University is currently investigating the application of core organic management options developed through an enhanced understanding of BMSB dispersal and whole-farm movement.
