Decision Aids for Stinkbugs in Cotton

New decision aids for determining thresholds of stink bugs in cotton.

Stinkbugs can be difficult to scout for in cotton and the folks in the Southeast developed a decision aid to help determine when you are at threshold. These cards have a quick release lanyard with a plastic card attached. On the card you will find holes that help you choose the right size boll to examine. It also has great photographs of the damage that you are looking for and directions how to use the card. There is also a brochure that goes along with the card for more information (StinkBugCardsHandouts). Thanks to a generous gift from Cotton Inc. and work from Dan Mott and Jack Bacheler at NC State, we finally have them in. Get in touch with me at the Delta Center (573-379-5431) if you would like to get one.
