Nebraska farmers are being warned about the relatively high numbers of stink bugs in corn and soybean fields.

UNL experts say the plants are sensitive to stink bug injury during their reproductive stages, so farmers should be watching for the bugs.

Stink bugs feed on plants and other insects by piercing and injecting the plant, then removing fluids from it.

More information about scouting for stink bugs, including treatment information, is available at cropwatch.unl.edu.
