Abstract or Description:
The Bagrada bug (Bagrada hilaris), an invasive pest of crucifers previously found in Africa, Asia, and Europe is now present in southern California and Arizona. It is a major pest of Brassicaceae crops and has been found on other plants as well. An integrated pest management strategy may include cultural practices, biological control, and pesticides.
