Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Control
The brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) has emerged as a major threat to orchard crops, small fruits, grapes, vegetables, row crops and ornamentals. Because BMSB has few natural predators and many plant hosts, populations have climbed exponentially. Immature and adult BMSB feed on a broad range of fruit, vegetable and grain crops, causing significant yield loss and damage that potentially renders crops unmarketable as fresh produce.
BMSB damage can cause apple growers in affected areas to divert production from fresh markets to processed and juice market production, resulting in significant loss of income.
When used as part of an integrated resistance management (IRM) program that rotates modes of action throughout the growing season, Lannate® SP will provide fast knockdown of BMSB to help growers minimize economic losses as well as damages to yield and crop quality.
Brown marmorated stink bugs are mobile pests that can re-infect a treated area quickly. Repeat applications as necessary to prevent re-infestation by BMSB adults migrating into the crop. Consult the product labels for the minimum application interval for each crop. If another application is needed prior to the minimum application interval, use a different insecticide with a different mode of action.
Build on a Strong Foundation
Lannate® SP should be incorporated into an existing integrated pest management (IPM) program. Growers are advised to maintain their foundational IPM strategy throughout the growing season, especially in the early growing phase.
