Kudzu Bugs in Prince George's County 2016

Kudzu bugs were found in southern Prince George’s County yesterday. In Maryland, it can be difficult to find the bugs in June and July. Yesterday, however, we found a cluster of large nymphs and a few adults. This find will help us narrow in our prediction of their phenology, the timing of life stages. 

Kudzu bugs found in Prince George's County. The adults are dark brown while the nymphs appear a light green color. The white specks in the dish are actually kudzu bug eggs that were found in the kudzu patch as well.
