Spreading the stink bug message
5 September 2019

KVH is involved in several initiatives to improve awareness and readiness for the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB), including a comprehensive public education programme alongside Biosecurity New Zealand and other horticultural groups known as the BMSB Council.

The campaign for the current high-risk season aims to lift public awareness around the damaging impacts of BMSB and increase the likelihood of early detection through passive surveillance.

KVH is co-funding the campaign, key aspects of which include print advertising in gardening magazines and grower publications; digital TV advertising on sites like TVNZ, Three Now and YouTube; displays on news website like Stuff and the NZ Herald; social media ads encouraging travellers and visitors to check their bags, rooms, and mail parcels; and digital advertising on screens at airports and shopping malls.
BMSB flyers and posters and videos are available from KVH by contacting us on 0800 665 825.
