Guidance for conducting BMSB Treatments

The department and the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries have specific requirements to ensure brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) treatments are conducted and verified effectively. These requirements are comprehensively documented in the department’s treatment methodologies and the Offshore BMSB Treatment Providers Scheme.

Key compliance requirements from the scheme and treatment methodologies for BMSB treatments have also been summarised in the below factsheets. The factsheets should be read in conjunction with the scheme and relevant treatment methodology.
