Bugs im­ported

The New Zealand Herald - - News -

Dozens of stink bugs have en­tered the coun­try in a pair of shoes bought on an Amer­i­can web­site. Up to 26 live brown mar­morated stink bugs were re­cently dis­cov­ered in a box of im­ported shoes in O¯ amaru. Na­tional Party biose­cu­rity spokesman Nathan Guy said he learned of the find­ing yes­ter­day after the per­son who found the bugs alerted the Min­istry for Pri­mary In­dus­tries. “The shoes were pur­chased from eBay,” he said.
