Kudzu bug is a relatively new pest in the United States. Researchers are still working on developing better ways to manage this pest in all of the different environments it is found. Contacting your state extension service is the best way to get recommendations that are tailored to your specific situation. Kudzu bug is highly mobile which causes some problems for targeting management across all areas where is may become a problem. Removal of kudzu patches and other overwintering sites can help reduce the number of insects that may migrate toward your house or field. This may be difficult depending on the location of the overwintering site, ownership of the land, and resilience of the kudzu or other host to removal. Below are articles that are targeted toward specific areas where kudzu bug may be an issue.
