Kudzu Bug on the Move and Becoming Nuisance!!

Kudzu bugs congregating on porch in North Carolina
Cooler temperatures signal emergence of kudzu bug adults from their preferred plant hosts in search of sites to spend the winter months. Unfortunately, this is often inside of houses! North Carolina homeowners are reporting high numbers on homes this week. Their more southern neighbors might expect the same within a matter of days or weeks as temperatures cool and host plants senesce.

Dan Suiter and Wayne Gardner have just released a new alert for homeowners dealing with these invasions.
