Be on the lookout for BMSB over winter

As mentioned in the last Bulletin, KVH and other horticultural groups are working together again this year on keeping the BMSB profile up over the winter months. The above video, featuring new close up footage of the BMSB, will be used on social media and other online advertising over the coming months.

Online and social media advertising are being used to help get the message out about the lifestyle impacts of this unwanted pest, the fact it hibernates inside homes over the winter, can infest homes in the thousands and is almost impossible to get rid of. Successful advertising from last year through the MetSerive app and shopping mall displays/TV screens will be repeated again.


KVH investigates reports of unusual symptoms to identify and manage any biosecurity risks.
