Abstract:
A 2-year light trap study was conducted to determine the seasonal flight activity of 5 species of stink bugs which attack Florida rice. Flight activity of all 5 species was remarkably in synchrony, being unimodal with greatest catches in Jul in all the species. These data suggest that planting date can be used to reduce stink bug damage in Florida rice.
