For many in the United States, September means summer’s end, football games and the first falling leaves of autumn. However, in the pest control world, the month signifies something different – high season for the dreaded Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (or BMSB for short).
Native to Asia, the quick-spreading insect has become a highly active pest in the U.S., especially in the Mid-Atlantic states.
Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Study
This month, the USDA issued a plea to citizens to help them study the pest by counting the number of BMSBs on the exterior of their homes. The project involves 50+ scientists, including researchers from Cornell University and Penn State.
Considering that the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug is relatively new to the United States, we at Ehrlich Pest Control decided to create the below infographic, “A Serious (and stinky) Bug Problem: Getting to know the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug” to better educate the public on how the pest arrived stateside and the havoc BSMB is wreaking (no pun intended) in America.
