Summary: This presentation will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners in the Southeast, Midsouth, and other soybean producing regions of the United States to identify and manage this invasive insect in soybeans. Identification of the life stages of kudzu bugs is emphasized, as management should target the immature stages to be most effective. In addition, planting date can influence the susceptibility of a field to damaging kudzu bug infestations. By the end of this presentation, practitioners will be able to identify the various life stages of kudzu bugs and time their management to preserve yield while minimizing the number of insecticide applications.
