The BMSB IPM Working Group has established itself as the primary platform for facilitating and coordinating research and outreach efforts for BMSB across the United States. The first formal BMSB Working Group meeting was held at the Appalachian Fruit Research Station in Kearneysville, WV, in June, 2010. Though much of the content has centered on agricultural problems, homeowners and consumers are affected as BMSB infests homes and destroys backyard gardens. We plan to address their concerns as well in 2013.
