First Instars stage
Variety of other nymphs
1.) They have no natural predator in the United States, unlike China where a parasitic wasp keeps them under control therefore they can just keep multiplying.
2.) They are becoming one of the worst agricultural pest in PA,MD,NJ,WV, VA and across the United States.
3.) BMSB’s are also home/building invaders during the winter months which is also causing problems.
4.) They are also spreading fairly fast across the United States because products from China are shipped all over the world.
Currently in 37 Counties but most likely all are infected
Once BMSBs enter your home they are hard to get rid of. They can get into dry goods, smell, and they live in in all the cracks and openings in your house so there’re hard to get rid of.
Best thing to do is keep them from getting in, seal up spaces around windows, door jams, fix screens with holes etc.
