Report Your Stink Bugs

istock-000015726058medium.jpgPenn State researchers need help from growers, nursery operators, and homeowners to enhance their understanding of stink bugs. They’ve released a web-based tool to collect reports on the location, size of infestations, and the estimated dollar value of damages, if any, caused by the pest. 

Visit and click on the “Report Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Sightings” link on the left-hand side of the page in the “Contribute” box. You’ll be asked to create an account, and then you can provide ongoing stink bug reports.

This project was developed in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences.
