Brown Marmorated Stink Bug with Dr. Jhalendra Rijal

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug is a fairly new pest to California, though it’s been in the US for a while. It’s an established pest in many states, though it has just started to move into agricultural areas in the San Joaquin Valley. In this episode, Jhalendra tells Phoebe about some of his research and observations with the new pest in Stanislaus County.
