Balsam woolly adelgid: a new invasive insect found in Juneau
Tuesday, January 14th
Experts from the US Forest Service, the Alaska Division of Forestry, and UAF Cooperative Extension Service will offer a free workshop on January 14th from 6:30 to 7:30pm at the Mendenhall Valley Public Library about a new invasive tree pest occurring in Juneau. This summer, infestations of a small sap-sucking insect called the balsam woolly adelgid were found affecting fir trees in Juneau. These insects are not native to Alaska and were not previously known to occur here.
Come learn about what balsam woolly adelgids are, what they do, the damage they are causing, and what you can do to help keep Juneau’s trees healthy!
