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.
