On the evening of Wednesday February 9, 2011 at 7:00 pm the Potomac Valley
Audubon Society and the National Conservation Training Center cosponsored a
presentation about the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug. The program was held at
NCTC at 7:00 p.m. in the large Byrd Auditorium in the Entrance Building.

The presenter was Dr. Tracy Leskey, entomologist at the U.S. Department of
Agriculture's Appalachian Fruit Research Station in Kearneysville.

Dr. Leskey and her colleagues at the Research Station are in the forefront of
research into the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, and she co-chairs a special
USDA working group that is trying to find ways to respond to the problems the
insect poses.

Native to China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug was
apparently introduced into the U.S. in eastern Pennsylvania in the late
1990s. Since then, it has become firmly established throughout the Middle
Atlantic region and is rapidly spreading to other parts of the country.

First thought to be simply a nuisance, the insect has quickly proven to be an
increasingly serious agricultural pest that is capable of causing widespread
damage to fruit and vegetable crops. Fruit growers in the Eastern Panhandle
have been particularly hard hit over the past couple of years."
