  34. 34. Observations• In small garden situation, placing wooden boards under plants helped in collecting BMSBs since they crawl under to seek shelter and moisture• Spraying Surround® could have minimized the spread of BMSBs and their population, but no proof• Spider web could reduce BMSB adult population• Designing material that mimic spider web that may reduce their flying ability and aid in trapping them. ©2011 Rodale Institute
  35. 35. Our future work …Certainly monitoring and identifying organic management tactics that control this bug would lead to: 1. Making better and effective recommendations to growers and home owners 2. Reduce crop losses 3. Ensure economic and environmental sustainability ©2011 Rodale Institute
