Stink bug campaign up for award

25 July 2019

We're really proud that the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) awareness campaign has been announced as a finalist in the upcoming Emergency Media and Public Affairs awards.

The awareness campaign is a joint effort between Biosecurity New Zealand and industry groups who make up the BMSB Council under the Government Industry Agreement (GIA) partnership and has the goal of raising awareness amongst growers and the wider public about the importance of keeping this unwanted pest out of the country, how to identify it, and how to report any suspected finds.

The awards will be presented during a ceremony in Wellington on Thursday 1 August.

Of course this all means nothing without your help – be sure to continue to keep an eye out for the unwanted BMSB.
