The brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) is wreaking havoc in U.S. homes, gardens, and agricultural operations, causing personal and economic woe.
Agricultural Research Service scientists are exploring various aspects of monitoring and control of this increasingly important insect pest, which is an invasive Asian species known as a sporadic pest of many tree fruit crops in China, Korea, and Japan.
As the temperature drops, many insects will search for shelter for the winter months—many times in private residences. This year, people may notice a new insect coming indoors.
The NCUE emphasizes innovation and research on household, structural and public health arthropod pests. The conference goal is to facilitate open communication of information among pest management professionals and scientists in industry, academia and government.
The 2012 National Conference on Urban Entomology (NCUE) will take place May 20-23, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia. To register for the conference, go to http://ncue.tamu.edu/.
