Mike Raupp, University of Maryland Professor of Entomology provides tips on how to keep ants and other pest from your home.
A new study by entomologists at the University of Maryland shows that brown marmorated stink bugs have a strong preference for ripe fruit. The study, published online June 25, 2015 in the Journal of Pest Science, reports the number of stink bugs feeding on nearly 4,000 fruit-bearing ornamental trees representing more than 200 popular varieties grown for sale at commercial nurseries. The researchers found that trees with ripe fruit attracted more than twice as many adult stink bugs compared with trees bearing immature fruit.
