Overview

This procurement relates to research to establish whether:

• The biological requirements of Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) diapause present a barrier to successful movement between hemispheres
• BMSB moving within the Southern Hemisphere are able to survive a period of exposure to elevated temperatures on a vessel before re-entering a winter environment.
• BMSB are able to produce viable offspring from unfertilised eggs.

The outcome of this research will be used to inform risk management decisions and will not only provide short term solutions, but establish longer term options for Biosecurity New Zealand to use on different
import pathways for BMSB
