9 August 2021 - Napier Convention Centre


NZPPS, Plant and Food Research, B3, and the BMSB Council are presenting a Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Symposium on Monday 9 August as part of the NZPPS conference.

The symposium is all about connecting those involved in BMSB research and sharing ideas to better prepare New Zealand for a BMSB response. There will be opportunities to hear from New Zealand scientists leading the research for BMSB preparedness and response as well as from Italy and USA, where the bug is established and causing significant damage. 

BMSB is a particularly difficult pest to eradicate and control, devastating horticulture and causing a nuisance overwintering in homes. As a hitchhiker, the risk of it arriving in New Zealand is high. Because of this, it’s essential that we focus on research that will help prevent an incursion, eradicate if it gets into New Zealand and effectively manage it long term if necessary.

Following the symposium, the NZPPS conference takes place on 10-11 August.  

The NZPPS conference is aligned with the NZ Apples and Pears conference being held in Hastings 11-13 August.
