Are you familiar with the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug?
Here is a briefing:
   -Native to China, Japan, Tawain
   -Accidentally introduced to US in Sept 1998
   -Agricultural Pest - Fruit & Vegetable Crops
  - Enters homes (through siding, soffits, window / door frames) in fall season to survive winter months
Description: 1.7 cm long and about the same wide.  Brown with gray, off-white, black, copper, bluish markings. 

Why is FPA bringing attention to the BMSB? Because Australia is mandating  that any containers stopping through Australia or having Australia as their final destination be fumigated according to their regulations. (Click Here for Australia Regulations.)

FPA has experience in fumigation of containers headed to Australia along with offices at a majority of the US ports.  So, if you have inquires or are needing a quote on a fumigation, please contact us at 877-372-3334 with your information and we will be happy to assist you.

We look forward to hearing from you!
