Invasive Species

Emerald Emerald Ash Borer and Hemlock Woolly Adelgid are here!

In the fall of 2014 an emerald ash borer beetle was found on a purple prism trap in the Town of Conklin. As the population of this invasive insect grows more and more ash trees will die.  Hemlock woolly adelgid has been here longer and is expanding its range.
