Tarnish plant bugs have arrived

The first eggs of tarnished plant bug will be arriving this upcoming Monday. We’ll be receiving several generations of these insects to help build a stable susceptible colony. Very shortly (Jan?), we’ll start bioassays using common/conventional in addition to reduced-risk insecticides. We will again be developing a discriminating dose for testing field populations. If you have had to use > 7 sprays this year to control tarnished plant bug, give me a holler!
