That stinks

A Southern Farmer story about the spread of the brown marmorated stink bug moving south along the East Coast quoted Rick Hoebeke, associate curator and manager of the insect collection at the Georgia Museum of Natural History.

“If people thought the invasion of the kudzu bug was bad, just wait,” said Hoebeke. “This stink bug spreads very rapidly by either hitchhiking or through its own powers of dispersal. It’s one of the best hitchhiker pests I know of.”
