Fox 2 - How insects are making supply chain problems even worse

December

2021

Inflation is going up and the supply chain is still not what it was pre-pandemic as products are still sitting at ports, waiting to be transported without the workers to make it happen. And the news isn't exactly rosy, especially when it comes to agricultural items.

Mark Vanderwerp of Rose Pest Solutions discusses how the supply chain delays affect pest infestations and our food supply.

Colder weather sends stink bugs creeping in to West Michigan homes

Ready or not, here they come! The brown marmorated stink bugs are about the size of a nickel, but cost many homeowners their sanity.

Unlike other insects, these creepy critters don't die in the wintertime. Instead, they protect themselves from the brutal elements by seeking refuge under a pile of leaves, loose bark, or inside your home.

"The good news is, these things aren't major, structural pests," Rose Pest Solutions Board Certified Entomologist Mark VanderWerp said. "That means yes, they will enter, but they don't do anything once they're inside. They don't bite you. They're not infesting your walls, not laying eggs in your house. None of that kind of stuff. They don't chew on your wood. So, they're OK to have in the structure, not ideal, but we can tolerate this."

According to the Department of Agriculture, the invasive species arrived in the United States by way of Asia, likely through a shipping container.

The first confirmed stink bug popped up in Allentown, Pennsylvania, in 2001. They've spread into states like Michigan ever since.

“These are fairly large insects, so if they are penetrating into your structure, it means you’ve got some holes and gaps and seams that probably should be sealed anyways," VanderWerp said.
