Alert: Pests Spotted in Arkansas

Arkansas – According to entomologist Dr. Gus Lorenz, in rice, cotton and soybeans there have been sightings of:

  • Red banded stink bugs
  • Bollworms
  • Fall armyworms

Red banded stink bugs have become an issue in soybeans, not just in AR but in MS and LA, as well. With populations growing, farmers are seeking solutions to combat this pest. Because of this, an ArkLaMiss Emergency Forum on red banded stink bug will be held Thursday, August 17, at 2:00 p.m. at the Capps Center in Stoneville, MS.
