Proper identification of invasive species can contribute to early detection and action to prevent the insect’s establishment and economic loss.
This webinar focused on how to identify two insect species that are of potential concern to vineyards – the Brown Marmorated Stinkbug and the Spotted Lanternfly – as well as the origin, biology, hosts, and behavior of these species.
