BMSB Working Group
The BMSB Working Group has established itself as the primary platform for facilitating and coordinating research and outreach efforts for BMSB across the United States. The first formal BMSB Working Group meeting was held at the Appalachian Fruit Research Station in Kearneysville, WV on June 15-16, 2010. Participants delivered relevant presentations encompassing BMSB research, field observations, stakeholder concerns, and other critical biological and ecological information. The group also generated and ranked a comprehensive list of research, extension, and regulatory priorities. A second meeting was held on November 17, 2010 at the AHS-AREC in Winchester, VA and included presentations of BMSB research updates, stakeholder concerns, and regulatory issues.
