New Stink Bug Turning Up In Wisconsin

7/11/11 – Scientists say a new species of stink bugs will soon start having an impact on Wisconsin agriculture. The brown marmorated stink bug is being found in Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin, having migrated from the East Coast. The bugs feed by inserting a sharp probe into the fruit of seed pots and suck out the juices. There are dozens of native stink bugs living in this country that don’t cause problems, but it’s believed this new species arrived from Asia sometime in the last 15 to 20 years.
