Got stink bugs in soybeans? Jim Heitholt, Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, wants to hear from you.

“Stink bugs have shown up in Southeast crops,” Heitholt says. “Just how serious are these pests from year-to-year?”

That’s what a team of university researchers and Extension specialists are trying to find out and they need to hear from as many soybean producers as possible to build a database.

“You can help by responding to a survey written for the Southern soybean industry,” Heitholt says. “The survey takes only about 10 minutes. By participating, you will make a big difference in our collective fight against stinkbugs. Survey results will be made available to everyone late this summer.
