Stink Bug Management Resources

Key Points

  • 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.
