The Project

Project Title Invasive Species
Insects To Study Stink bug
Project Description We have been learning about invasive species in Environmental Club. The stink bug is of special interest because the students are all familiar with it. Since the stink bug is from Asia it has no known natural predators here in NJ and they have become a real problem in this area. Some areas are infested worse than others. The students have been brain-storming ways to control them but are having a difficult time. The students thought that if they knew more about the stink bugs' anatomy and physiology and you could provide us with information on their natural predators in Asia that they could help to find a solution.
