The results of an IR4 funded chemical trial are presented. Fourteen materials, combinations of materials, rates, or application techniques were examined over an entire season to determine if they impact stink bug abundance and damage to peppers. Among the materials examined were pyrethroids, neo-nicitinoids, and several materials that are potential candidates for use in certified organic production.
