Bed bugs, stink bugs headline Entomology Meeting in Hartford, Conn.
Date:3/6/2012

"Bed bugs are coming back. Are you ready?" asks Dr. Changlu Wang, Rutgers University entomologist and organizer of the Bed Bug and Urban Integrated Pest Management symposium. Bed bugs have become problematic pests of schools, houses, apartments and other public spaces.

Noted bed bug researchers and educators will discuss innovative bed bug control and education methods developed by leading researchers and educators in a symposium to be held on Sunday morning, March 18, from 8:00 am-12:00 noon, at the Annual Meeting of the Eastern Branch of the Entomological Society of America in Hartford, CT (see http://bit.ly/z3Lt2h).

Brown marmorated stinkbugs, first reported in Pennsylvania in the late 1990's seem to be everywhere are everywhere we live, plus fields, orchards and vineyards. These insect emit a foul-smelling substance that can taint produce, and their feeding damages crops. Their growing populations have caused significant economic impact on agriculture.

Two symposia will discuss the latest findings on stink bug biology and trends in attempts to control these insects. "Managing Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Today and in the Future" will discuss the insect's impact on vegetable crops and urban landscapes, and methologies to control it. This symposium will be held on Sunday afternoon, March 18 from 1:00-5:00 pm. A symposium on brown marmorated stink bug biology and crop impact will be held on Monday morning, 8:00-12:00 pm, March 19.

These symposia will headline the ESA Eastern Branch's 83rd Annual Meeting, to be held March 16-19, 2012, at the Hilton Hartford. The three-day meeting will draw entomologists from northeastern and mid-Atlantic states and several Canadian provinces. Other symposia will feature papers on biological control, insects as vectors of human and plant disease, and detection of new and emerging insect pests. Graduate and undergraduate students throughout the eastern region will compete in oral and poster presentations about their research.

Growers, crop consultants, landscapers and other interested members of the public can attend the symposia with a half day ($40) or full day ($60) admission.

The meeting will include a free public program for all ages, "It's a Bug's World" (see http://bit.ly/xeTfIN). This event will be held on Saturday, March 17 from 10:00 am-3:00 pm at the Hilton Hartford. "Bug's World" will feature informational displays, demonstrations and activities, and a pollinator talk and honey tasting with the 2012 American Honey Princess, Danielle Dale.
