Research Project: RESEARCH ON NATURAL ENEMIES OF BROWN MARMORATED STINKBUG AND SOYBEAN APHID IN KOREA

Location: Beneficial Insects Introduction Research

Project Number: 1926-22000-026-01
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 30, 2007
End Date: Sep 29, 2012

Objective:
Conduct field surveys in Korea for indigenous Asian natural enemies of the brown marmorated stinkbug (Halyomorpha halys) and soybean aphid (Aphis glycines), determine their impact on these pests in Korea, document native host range and other life history information, and provide live natural enemy material of selected species to ARS cooperators for further evaluation as potential biological control agents of these invasive pests in the United States.

Approach:
1) conduct field surveys in Korea for indigenous Asian natural enemies of the brown marmorated stinkbug (Halyomorpha halys) and soybean aphid (Aphis glycines); 2) determine the impact of natural enemies on these pests in Korea; 3) document the native host range of natural enemies and other life history information relevant to their potential use as biological control agents; 4) provide live material of selected natural enemy species to ARS cooperators for further evaluation as potential biological control agents of these invasive pests in the United States.
