Survey Evaluating Impact of Brown Marmorated Stink Bug on Agriculture
A nationwide survey is underway to gather information from farmers and growers on the economic impact of the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) on agriculture. The survey asks when BMSB became a problem for you, where you currently get information on how to control them, how much damage you have suffered, your use of and interest in various management practices, and your feelings about biological control methods and their potential for your operation. The results of the survey will be used by Extension programs across the United States to fine tune management advice for the BMSB and help prioritize research and outreach activities. The online survey takes about 20 minutes to complete.
