Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Survey

Got bugs? Are stink bugs causing problems for you at your home or business?  

The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) IPM Working Group would like to hear from you to learn more about the problems caused by BMSB and how you are tackling them via this survey.

We encourage you to take the time to fill out this simple survey if you have dealt with or are currently dealing with brown marmorated stink bugs in your area. We continue to monitor the distribution of BMSB in Illinois as well is its progression into a nuisance pest in homes and a pest of crops in Illinois. 

We currently have confirmed BMSB in the following Illinois counties. We are still encouraging people to report new infestations and to contact us if you have any questions.
