Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB), Halyomorpha halys, was first detected in the U.S. in Pennsylvania in 1998. This pest is now well-established in the northeast and has been detected in more than 25 states, including Oregon. These non-native stink bugs look much like many of our native stink bug species. This article describes two isolated incidents of BMSB identification in Mississippi.
