Research Project: Development of a Reliable Pheromone Lure for Brown Marmorated Stink Bug

Location: Appalachian Fruit Research Laboratory: Innovative Fruit Production, Improvement and Protection

Project Number: 1931-21000-024-28
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 01, 2012
End Date: Jul 31, 2013

The objective of this project is to develop a reliable pheromone lure for monitoring and managing brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB).

ARS will acquire the basic knowledge of the identification of the BMSB pheromone. This information will be used by both to develop pheromone lures for this species. Ohio State University will evaluate lures for BMSB based on a standard protocol developed by ARS.
