Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Season 2017-18

A reminder to all importers that Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Season is still prevalent until 30th April, 2018. This of course affects the importation of targeted break bulk and vehicles, boats, machinery and machinery parts out of the United States and Italy.

What has changed?
The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources has developed measures to manage the 2017‑18 seasonal risk of Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) infestations in sea cargo shipped from the United States and on high risk pathways originating in Europe. The 2017-18 BMSB measures will continue to apply to target goods arriving from the United States, and will now include target goods from Italy shipped from 1 September 2017 to 30 April 2018 inclusive. The target goods season dates, treatments, and requirements for management of target goods are unchanged. In addition, heightened inspections will apply to target goods from other European countries where BMSB is known to be established in order to monitor emerging risk of importation of BMSB on those pathways.
