What pests to watch for in August – Florida
Stink bugs are pests of a wide variety of plants including vegetables, fruits, and ornamentals. Stink bugs use their piercing sucking mouthparts to siphon out nutrients from plants.
The red banded stink bug sucks out nutrients from a plant often leaving behind chlorotic or white patches on fruiting bodies or leaves. These white patches make it harder for the plant to photosynthesize resulting in slow growth, wilting, or even death of the plant in severe cases. In soybean, red banded stink bug feeding leads to unmarketable and shriveled seeds.
