Brown Marmorated Stink Bug on tomato

Few crop pests have received as much attention as the brown marmorated stink bug, and for good reason. Aside from heavily damaging various crops in the mid-Atlantic U.S., this economically-important pest has been also been spreading westward across the country.

This 2012 Focus on Tomato presentation, authored by Dr. Tom Kuhar, Associate Professor of Entomology at Virginia Tech, helps consultants, growers, applied researchers and other practitioners better understand and manage the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB), particularly in tomato crops.

The presentation includes:

  • A short biological and ecological background of the BMSB
  • Illustrations of the BMSB and the damage they cause
  • Population data for tomato crops
  • Insecticide efficacy data for managing the BMSB
  • Best BMSB management practices
