Brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB)- a new invasive pest
In August, 2004 a single specimen of brown marmorated stink bug was caught in a trap in southeast Portland's Ladd's Addition. Currently it has not been determined if there is a breeding population in Oregon but there is a possibility that there are more of these invasive stink bugs in our area. This stink bug causes plant damage and is also a nuisance pest, invading households during cold weather similar to other insects such as box elder bugs. The following links have more information about this new stink bug. Anyone who thinks they have found additional specimens of the stink bug should contact the Invasive Species Hotline at 1-866-INVADER (1-866-468-2337).
