Nezara viridula already identified on several pepper crops

A few years ago, there was a new pest in pepper crops. The Nezara viridula, commonly known as southern green shield bug, had been spotted at a single nursery in the Netherlands at the end of summer. It now looks as though this bug is emerging earlier in the season.

If Nezara viridula is identified in your crop, you are advised to inform and consult your technical advisor immediately to clarify the best strategy to control this pest. It is important to monitor carefully and detect this pest early, while there are still small areas to treat.
