High-risk BMSB season being managed

22 March 2018

Since the start of the high-risk season in September, almost 2000 Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs (BMSB) have been found and caught at the border.

More detail can be read in the March KVH risk update for BMSB, which includes latest data reported by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) and information about ongoing activities to make sure that everything possible is being done to manage the threat posed by this unwanted pest, including the extension of mandatory fumigation and enhanced inspections through to late May.
