Episode 12: Check your deliveries for this stinky hitchhiker with Antonette Walford

Hitchhiker pests are bugs that can hitch a ride to Australia via imported material. Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs can come to Australia on a variety of different objects and tend to shelter together in large numbers, making them not only an agricultural and horticultural pest but also a nuisance pest for households as well. Antonette Walford, entomologist with Agriculture Victoria explains what these bugs look like and what to do if you happen to find one.
