ATHENS —  Three minutes of your time could help save some of Georgia’s crops.

Although stink bugs are only considered to be a nuisance pest in Georgia, there is a high possibility that they could soon become an agricultural pest as well. That’s why some entomologists at UGA need Georgians help.

A quick tracking survey is available to see what counties these bugs are most likely to be spotted in, to try and tackle the issue before it becomes a much bigger problem for our crop production.
