Default The big bad bmsb and your hop crop.

I currently work at a mom and pop garden center in northern Indiana and we have suddenly had a huge increase in activity surrounding the BMSM or Brown Marmorated Stink Bug. Apparently these guys are coming full steam across america and are destroying alot of food crops and fruit crops. They are supposed to hit big and Ohio state and Purdue Universities have been doing alot of research on how to control them. Due to their hard exoskeleton and their long legs that keep them high off the ground they are quite difficult to control. I have no info on how these will effect hop crops but i will defiantly keep doing some research on the issue. If anyone has any info i would greatly appreciate it!
