A global pest risk assessment for the brown marmorated stink bug - “Project Stinky” (in progress)
An initiative of International Pest Risk Research Group (IPRRG)
-Produce pest risk models and maps that assess the global threat posed by the brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys (Stål) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae), to agriculture, natural resources, and human welfare.
-Provide detailed examples to illustrate how thinking and modelling about pest invasion, specifically pest entry, establishment, spread, and impact, evolve as new information becomes available.
-Share insights about the modelling and mapping process with new pest risk analysts.
-Deliver map products and training opportunities based on brown marmorated stink bug to developing nations and others
