No stink bugs over winter

A new video about the social impacts of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) – especially on our homes - has been created to keep up the profile of this unwanted pest over the coming winter months.

The video is hosted by Ruud ‘the Bug Man’ Kleinpaste but unlike the summer video which focuses on orchards and gardens, this winter version has more information and imagery about the fact the bug infests homes, hibernates over winter and is almost impossible to get rid of.

Read more from the last Bulletin about the work KVH is doing alongside other horticultural product groups about BMSB over winter, including TV and website advertising.
