This publication is available in a PDF file format only.

In Virginia and other Mid-Atlantic states, the invasive brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) has become a serious nuisance pest (Rice et al. 2014). Each fall, these insects aggregate on buildings seeking shelters in which to spend the winter months. A licensed pest control professional can treat buildings for stink bugs in the late summer or fall just prior to bug congregation. A number of insecticides are registered for structural pest control, but the relative effectiveness of these products is not completely known.
