The stink bug is back

Last year saw the Department of Agriculture introduce strict new measures in the war against the Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs

This year the Department of Agriculture are, once again, taking these insects very seriously.

Head over to the Department’s website where they clearly outline the measures.

The measures apply to target goods shipped from all ports in the United States from 1 September 2015 to 30 April 2016 inclusive. The measures will remain in place for the entire season unless pest infestations are detected. Should this occur, the department may impose emergency requirements similar to those applied in the 2014-2015 season.
