In the eastern United States, hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), Adelges tsugae Annand (Hemiptera: Adelgidae) is considered an invasive pest of eastern hemlocks; an ecologically foundational tree species. Current management of HWA focuses on chemical and biological controls, with recent research suggesting that these two tactics could be integrated successfully. The approach is to protect a subset of hemlocks with systemic insecticides while releasing predatory insects onto adjacent, unprotected… CONTINUE READING
