In this manuscript, we present model results from eight locations over 10 years based on temperatures at weather stations and photoperiod. We inadvertently made a poor choice for a weather station to represent Wenatchee WA. To avoid heat island effects, we chose the Grouse Camp weather station to represent Wenatchee. However, although Grouse Camp is only 21 km from Wenatchee, it is in a mountainous area (1,642 m elevation) and poorly represents the climate in the apple growing region of Wenatchee, WA (190 m elevation). Thus, the results do not reflect potential population dynamics of H. halys in Wenatchee. In re-evaluation of the model, the data show that populations at Wenatchee, WA, are predicted to behave similarly to those at Salem, OR, with an average albeit marginal positive population growth. Conclusions that were driven heavily by photoperiod, such as the range in days for initiation of oviposition by overwintered adults, were less affected (from 16 down to 13 days). The strong differences were due to markedly higher degree day accumulations at Wenatchee versus Grouse Camp.

The following six files use the same order of tables and figures from the original manuscript and use the Weather Station data for Wenatchee, WA (network ID: GHCND:USC00459074).

• Table 2. Model outputs defining key population parameters for the years 2005–2014.

• Figure 7. Model predictions of adult population size for Wenatchee, WA. P represented parental overwintered adults, which was initialized as 1000 for each year and for each simulation run.

• Figure 8. Predicted population sizes (+/− range from all simulations and years) across all geographic locations for (A) maximum adult population size, and (B) final population size, and (C) yearly degree-day accumulation. The error bars represent the standard errors from 100 simulations for the metrics.

• Figure S3. Predicted total population size by life stage for Wenatchee, WA from 2005 through 2014. Populations were initialized with 1000 adults for each year and simulation run.

• Figure S5. Degree-day accumulation for Halyomorpha halys development in Wenatchee, WA from 2005 through 2014.

• Figure S7. Predicted total population size by generation for Wenatchee, WA.
