We have another week remaining in August – what I refer to as Stink Bug Month – but insects don’t have calendars and don’t necessarily stop feeding on cotton in September. Late-planted cotton will be particularly susceptible to stink bugs as earlier planted fields become less attractive, forcing a bottleneck of adult stink bugs into the late cotton or soybeans. The immatures that are developing in cotton have no choice but to continue feeding, as they cannot fly to another host. So, scout and be able to recognize the immature stages present in the field. We are seeing a lot of hatching eggs right now.
