New pest spreading from Mid-Atlantic region, no natural predators in North America, and limited pesticide options, highly destructive to fruit/vegetable crops and a nuisance within residences.
Only three published papers in Pubmed, dating from 2007. Genetic sequence would help with rational pesticide design (if it is done like what is done for rational drug design). The public is highly fed up with this insect (it is catching up with bed bugs) and would welcome research into stopping this. Genetic material should be easily obtained.
