Latest BMSB finds

9 March 2018

Throughout February and March there have been several media reports regarding car ships from Japan containing significant numbers of stink bugs – BMSB and Yellow Spotted Stink Bug (YSSB).

KVH says that it has been strongly promoting the need to treat vehicles offshore so that New Zealand's horticulture industry doesn’t have to deal with this problem.

More detail can be read in the February KVH risk update, which includes latest data reported by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) and information about activities involving KVH to make sure that everything possible is being done to manage the threat posed by this unwanted pest.
