Abstract

The southern green stink bug, new to California, has joined other species as a pest of processing tomatoes. With a wide host range, it is a potentially serious pest on other crops.Southern green stink bug, shown in cover photo by Jack Kelly Clark, was recently discovered in California and could become a serious pest of tomatoes and other crops because of its very wide host range. Chemical control of stink bugs is often ineffective, possibly because the bugs stay under the plant canopy, where sprays don't reach them.
