Super publicity: Stinkbug trap company scores online air time

Stephanie Cates, marketing director for Spokane Valley's Sterling International, was a featured guest on a segment today of WSJ's Lunch Break.

Sterling makes the Rescue line of bug killing traps. Cates got a chance to sound off on the company's recently launched stink bug traps. Back East, this is a major concern as stink bugs there have moved across farmlands and into suburban and urban locations.

The jury is still out on whether the Northwest will have to gear up for stink bug war.  Experts have said you'll find stink bugs in our area; they're just not that present yet to constitute a serious crop threat.
