Items of Interest:

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug
Utah State University Extension. Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey.
Brown marmorated stink bug was first found in Utah in 2012 (in Salt Lake County) and has since also been found in Utah County. The Utah CAPS team has placed several BMSB traps throughout Utah. Traps have been placed in residential settings, and in commercial orchards and corn fields. If you are a grower or a homeowner and are interested in having a trap placed in your field/garden, please contact Lori Spears

Africanized Honey Bee in Utah
Utah Department of Agriculture and Food.
Since 2009 the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) has tracked the movement of Africanized honeybees (AHB) in the State of Utah. UDAF has set traps, monitored feral colonies and tested suspected managed honeybees. As of 2013 these efforts have revealed that AHB are currently present in Iron, San Juan and Washington counties. Only one person has been confirmed to have suffered an attack by AHB in Utah; UDAF will continue to monitor AHB in the state. We encourage residents to approach all bees with caution and respect.

Mussel Update
DOI. NPS. Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
As of May 2014, thousands of adult quagga mussels have been found in Lake Powell. It is crucial to keep the mussels from moving from Lake Powell to other lakes and rivers. Utah and Arizona state laws require you to clean, drain, and dry your boat when leaving Lake Powell using self-decontamination procedures. Additional steps are required if you launch on other waters without a significant drying period or if you are on Lake Powell for more than 5 days. Read the most up to date information on mussels at Glen Canyon here.
