    Anti-stinkbug CPs

    http://terraforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116363

    This year there has been a massive invasion of the invasive brown marinated stinkbug in the northeast and mid atlatic regions, soon they with spread like wildfire throughout the US.

    Which CPs seem to catch the most of these pests?

    Also, the Japanese beetle are gone for now, but a rainy season with ensure their return. Any suggestions of CPs that control these?

    generally cps catcher thinks like gnats or ants, its rare when anything is caught like a giant bettles or a moth. But for these stinkbugs you need big plants. like larger neps and larger sarrs. No sundews. vft, butterworts can do the trick.

    there's really not much of a chance of CPs controlling an insect pest. It's simply a matter of numbers. On a good day, a CP will catch 1 or 2 insects. Meanwhile, a single female insect can lay hundreds of eggs. So even if they only ate the species you wanted it to, even the most voracious CP wouldn't make any significant dent in a pest population.

    Also, could the stinkbugs be poisonous to any cps?
