Pest Detection- Invasive Bug Trapping

  • This program provides a second line of defense against exotic pests through the early detection of new introductions before they become widely established. Traps are placed in primarily urban areas to detect such insect pests as Mediterranean Fruit Fly and Light Brown Apple Moth, Gypsy Moths, Japanese Beetles, and a host of other targeted pest species. Through early detection the likelihood of these pests becoming established in the state is lessened and the cost and environmental impact of eradiation is minimized.Picture1
