Stink bug Management Resources
Overwintered stink bugs migrating into fields are difficult to find often until the first hatch is well established.
First generation hatches are also difficult to see at early instars without plant shaking
Pheromone traps can provide a good early warning on source of intial migration and timing.
Early field border treatments can greatly reduce field losses.
Pyretheroid plus neonicotinoid combinations have been the most effective replacements for OP and endosulfan
All products require superior coverage and canopy penetration to be effective.
Pesticide labels are being updated to improve pre-harvest interval restrictions-check label updates.
