Technical Abstract: Stink bugs continue to present problems to cotton producers in the southeastern United States. Management of stink bugs is complicated by the extensive distribution of the bugs’ populations in the landscape and their mobility. In this paper, we will summarize the action of natural enemies of stink bugs in cotton and discuss the challenges and possibilities of implementing biological control for stink bugs in the cotton crop.
