Recently, Alan Leslie and others from across the state published an article in the Maryland Entomologist on kudzu bugs in Maryland. The article discusses the known history as well as the biology and identification of the bugs. Furthermore, the article tracks the movement of the kudzu bugs in the United States and Maryland. For Maryland specifically you can find information concerning the counties and locations where the bugs were found in 2013. If you are looking for a way to control the kudzu bugs in your area, there is a section detailing environmentally responsible integrated pest management options. So if you are looking to learn more in general about this pest species or are looking for specific information as to spread or management, this article is an excellent resource.
