Stink Bugs

If you’re not checking for stink bugs in your soybeans, you should. This year appears to be producing an extra large population of green stink bugs, at least in western Kentucky. For example, as of July 10, 2015, a total of 2,184 stink bugs have been captured in a black light trap on the UK Research and Education Center (UK-REC) in Princeton, Kentucky. That is more stink bugs than were captured in all of last year (2014) in TWO black light traps at the UK-REC (e.g. 121 + 695 = 816). In fact, more stink bugs were captured in the 2015 single trap (week ending on June 26) than in all of 2014. However one looks at it, that is a lot of stink bugs.
