Interpretive Summary: The brown marmorated stink bug is native to China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. In the United States, populations were discovered in the mid-1990s in or near Allentown, PA. As of 2013, H. halys has been detected in 41 states and the District of Columbia in the USA. In Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia, brown marmorated stink bug has become a severe agricultural and nuisance pest, is considered an agricultural/nuisance pest in New York, North Carolina, Ohio and Tennessee, and a nuisance only pest in 10 additional states. Genetic studies have revealed that populations in the USA originated from a single introduction from the region of Beijing, China. A review of the identity, distribution, biology and ecology, and management of brown marmorated stink bug, as well as its impact on homeowners and on agriculture and gaps in our understanding of this invasive species are summarized in this chapter.

Technical Abstract: The brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys, is native to China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. The first USA populations were discovered in the mid-1990s in or near Allentown, PA. As of 2013, H. halys has been detected in 41 states and the District of Columbia in the USA, though Colorado is still considered an unofficial find. In Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia, H. halys has become a severe agricultural and nuisance pest, is considered an agricultural/nuisance pest in New York, North Carolina, Ohio and Tennessee, and a nuisance only pest in 10 additional states. Genetic studies have revealed that H. halys populations in the USA originated from a single introduction from the region of Beijing, China. A review of the identity, distribution, biology and ecology, and management of H. halys, as well as its impact and gaps in knowledge are summarized in this chapter.
