Stink Bug Spreads Across Michigan Farms

Stink Bug Spreads Across Michigan Farms

Fruit and vegetable farmers in Michigan worry about the invading stink bug.

The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug is a beetle that eats a lot of different plants.

There are no state or federal eradication programs and the stink bug has spread from field-to-field across Michigan quickly in the past few years. 

MSU entomologist Matthew Grieshop told the Detroit News that  these things spend the winter in your house.

He expects a lot of damage, especially to the tree fruit, in the next 3 or 4 years.
