Pest Management Information in Spanish
In the late 1970s Cesar Chavez became well-known for boycotting grapes in the United States, leading a movement concerned about agricultural workers’ exposure to pesticides. Today, people who speak Spanish often make their own decisions about pesticides, whether in the home, in the field, or in schools and communities.
The Northeastern IPM Center is publishing a growing collection of information about pests in both English and Spanish. Recent additions to the collection are a page dedicated to brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) and database of IPM resources.

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug
Brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys (Stål), is a voracious pest of fruit, vegetables, and ornamental plants in North America. It was accidentally imported from Asia in the late 1990s. Despite being recognized in its native range as a pest, the damage it has caused in North America has been considerably worse.
