How much damage has the BMSB done to crops in Ohio(dollar amount or Yield loss by year)?
Hamilton County Ohio
I'm not aware of a survey in Ohio specific to crop (fruit and vegetable) damage by BMSB. Unlike states to the east, we remain in the very early stages of spread across the state; infestations are greatest in northeast Ohio, but highly localized elsewhere. For example, here in southwest Ohio, we may see huge numbers in one location, but no bugs just a few miles away. Of course, we expect that will change over the next few seasons.
