About the Webinar

Brown marmorated stink bugs (BMSB) have caused considerable economic damage in the Mid-Atlantic states, and biological control agents against BMSB are not readily available for growers yet. In this webinar, the efficacy and utilization of the spined soldier bug as a native biological control agent will be presented and discussed. This webinar is for a mixed audience including researchers, extension specialists and agents, and growers seeking information on biological control of stink bugs.

About the Presenter

Dr. Park is an associate professor in the entomology program at West Virginia University. His research team has been working on a state-wide brown marmorated stink bug and natural enemy survey, organic stink bug management, and mass rearing of the spined soldier bug.
