A new pest has invaded US borders from China and entomologist Gary Hevel explains how the brown marmorated stink bug crossed the ocean and how to get rid of them.
It would seem that the US just cannot catch lately with this new bug deciding that the US will make a fine home.
While the stink bugs are certainly an annoyance, at least they can’t sting or bite. Unfortunately, they do have a taste for a variety of plants, including fruits and veggies.
As more farmers are reporting that the chemicals used to control the bugs before are not working, they stress that the bugs don’t actually do anything to affect the taste of the foods.
