Invasive insects not only impact our naturalized areas, but our urban forests and managed landscapes as well. Insects including the Asian longhorned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis) and emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) have had striking impacts in Massachusetts and beyond. Relatively new non-native species, like the spotted lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula), continue to threaten our shade trees, ornamentals, and agriculture. This presentation will discuss how to identify these organisms and the damage they cause, their biology, and where to report suspicious insects so you can help protect the Commonwealth.
