Biologists Control Pest Destroying Hemlock Forests
More than a half-million predatory beetles have been released in the Great Smoky Mountains in the last decade. Biologists say they are controlling a pest that has devastated hemlock forests. They also spray horticultural oil on trees near roads and inject systemic insecticides into the soil and the stems of the hemlocks in the park. Now Biologists are releasing two new predatory beetle species into the Smokies to feed on the pest that has been feeding on the forest. They hope releasing the two new species will enhance biological control of the invasive pest. Both species come from Osaka Japan. (bg)
