Invasive Insects: Impacts in Agriculture

6/10/2020: Invasive Insects: Impacts in Agriculture

Insects can cause serious damage by feeding on crops, and insect species that have been introduced from other countries can often cause the most serious economic damage. This webinar will cover some of the basic biology and ecology of invasive species and explain why they are able to outbreak so severely in new areas. We will also discuss different ways of responding to introductions of new pest species using examples from past introductions as case examples of management methods developed to cope with new pests.

Presenter: Alan Leslie, Extension Educator, Charles County Extension
