Abstract

This investigation into the pattern of overwintering brown marmorated stink bugs (BMSB) used survey data collected between Dec 2013 and Mar 2014 from residents in two 4-story dormitories on the Rutgers University Cook Campus in New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA. Results suggest that a higher proportion of BMSB overwinters towards the top of urban structures than towards the ground level. This finding can be used by pest control operatives for targeted applications that will reduce the total amount of pesticides needed while still suppressing the majority of urban nuisance populations of BMSB.
