An invasive insect unintentionally brought over from Asia, the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) poses a significant risk to specialty crop growers.
With few natural predators in North America, BMSB has spread quickly. Learn about the pest’s biological roots in Asia, its reach throughout North America, and our team’s work to identify, monitor, and manage the risks.
Learn to identify BMSB across its life stages and recognize associated crop damage.
If you confuse BMSB with the native brown stink bug of the genus Euschistus, you aren't alone. They look alike. But this page will show you a quick and easy identifier.
