Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Management Survey for Commercial Producers

A nation-wide survey is currently underway to gather information from farmers and growers on the economic impact of the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) on agriculture. The results of the survey will be used by Extension programs across the United States to help prioritize research and outreach activities, and to fine-tune management advice for BMSB.

If you are a commercial producer, you can help researchers by participating in the survey. Researchers want to learn about when BMSB became a problem for you, where you currently get information on how to control it, how much damage you have suffered, your use of and interest in various management practices, and your feelings about biological control methods and their potential for your operation.

The survey takes about 20–25 minutes to complete. Individual survey responses are confidential and the data collected will only be reported in summaries.
