Australia and New Zealand have set strict requirements, annually for the period from 1 September to 31 May, for various goods that are exported to Australia/New Zealnd, that these goods must be treated against the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, or BMSB.
The stink bug (brown stink bug) is an insect that causes considerable damage to various crops, trees and fruit. In order to prevent this from occurring, Australia and New Zealand have introduced strict requirements that this insect must be treated in the country of dispatch, so called quarantine requirements BMSB.
