Special issue on the brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys: an emerging pest of global concern

Research papers on a pest of global concern

Abstract

In this special issue, 3 review articles summarize the current knowledge on the discoveries and applications in chemical ecology of H. halys, the chemical control options in the USA and biological control by native parasitoids and predators. The 23 original research articles by scientists from Europe, China, Australia, New Zealand and North America report new insights into the potential global distribution, bug response to semiochemicals and vibrational signals, interaction with microbial symbionts, behavioral and population response of natural enemies, management using pesticides, including organic materials, as well as trap crops, monitoring, and development of action thresholds for pest populations.
