The stink bugs move from wheat fields to corn fields. Stinks bugs also build up in weeds.</p> <p>Reisig&nbsp;offered management advice, stressing that there are no shortcuts for stink bug management. Scouting is critical and when stink bugs are moving heavily from wheat to corn, multiple insecticide sprays may be needed, he&nbsp;said.</p>
