Published on

Are you looking to get your emerald ash borer (EAB) updates?  Pesticides?  Parasitoids?  Why not learn more about EAB and other invasives from the comfortable of your own office or home?  Tomorrow, February 21 is the official kick-off to the "2017 spring semester." 


On Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 11:00 am EST, Dr. Cliff Sadof with Purdue University will be providing an update on Chemical Control of EAB:  What Works, What Doesn't Work, and Why.  This session is the first of a series of presentations that include information on hemlock woolly adelgid, amborsia beetles, street tree surveys in an early detection and rapid responses program, and rearing, release and recovery of EAB parasitoids.
