One aspect of the Southeastern Regional Stink Bug Management Project was to determine the phonological period of cotton development most susceptible to boll damage from stink bugs. Data will be presented that describes the stink bug species composition, contribution of plants bugs to overall bug damage to bolls, the temporal susceptibility to stink bug damage by bloom stage, and the development of a dynamic threshold that varies according to the period of low or high susceptibility of cotton plants to stink bug damage.
