January 22, 2014

New finds of brown marmorated stink bugs (BMSB) (Halyomorpha halys) in Sacramento County have been reported by UC Cooperative Extension (UCCE) Sacramento County viticulture and pomology farm advisor Chuck Ingels. Finds were confirmed at two residential properties in Citrus Heights in the northeast county in October 2013, and one was confirmed in December 2013 at an Elk Grove residence in the southern part of the county-within the northern boundary of the Lodi American Viticultural Area.
