Special Symposium on BMSB at the Eastern Branch Meeting of the Entomological Society of America

Suddenly they are everywhere. These foul-smelling bugs, originally from Asia, were first detected in Pennsylvania in the late 1990’s. Now they are damaging fruits and vegetables and invading homes in many parts of the United States.

State, federal, university, and industry entomologists from the eastern U.S. and Canada will converge at the Harrisburg Hilton Hotel in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, March 18-21, 2011, to discuss the brown marmorated stink bug plague during the 82nd Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America's Eastern Branch during a symposium called “The Plague of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug.”
