Brown marmorated stink bug season is here!

The brown marmorated stink bug season is here. Over summer it is important to keep a look out for these pests (Haylomorpha halys), which are not present in New Zealand but are a real threat to a wide variety of plants and NZ’s horticulture industries.

There are, however, species of similar shaped insects that are already present in New Zealand, which you may find at home or at your facility.

See above for photos of some of the species in New Zealand which you may see, compared to the brown marmorated stink bug.
