Details:
Brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) is an invasive stink bug species that has been causing economic damage to almonds in California in the last 3 to 4 years in the northern San Joaquin Valley. In this talk, Dr. Jhalendra Rijal, UCCE Area IPM Advisor, will discuss the identification and biology of the pest and ways to monitor this pest in almond orchards. He will also talk about the biology and feeding nature of other native stink bugs and leaffooted bugs that may be present in an almond orchard, and provide a comprehensive IPM strategy to manage these multiple hemipteran pests in almond orchards. One DPR CE unit (other) and one CCA CE unit (IPM) were requested.
