Regarding the NBC news segment, Masterson said, “We have been exterminating stink bugs for years, and have been tracking and seeing a steady increase in this particular species in recent months.”

 Masterson added, “Asian Stink Bugs are adaptable creatures that can live on any number of diets, so they tend to be quite hearty. While they don’t typically carry diseases, they could potentially be an issue for agriculture in the California, so we do need to take them seriously both as a company and as a state.”
