More Information About The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug
The brown marmorated stink bug is an invasive species that is increasingly establishing a presence in Wisconsin.
Native to East Asia, the bug has spread throughout much of the eastern U.S. since the turn of the century. An indoor nuisance, the bug is also an agricultural pest that consumes a variety of crops, particularly fruits. Though it has only been spotted in Wisconsin over the last seven years, entomologists tracking the species suggest that it may become a prominent problem for farmers and gardeners.
