The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, New Haven Bulletin May Managing Hemlock Woolly Adelgid in Ornamental Landscapes BY MARK S. McCLURE. Introduction. Hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae, HWA) is an aphid-like invasive pest of hemlock trees in eastern North HWA is native to all hemlock species in western North America and Asia, and hemlock trees in these regions are unaffected by HWA infestations.

1 However, hemlocks in the eastern United States have not adapted to this pest, and HWA has caused widespread decline. 1. Background. Hemlock woolly adelgid (Hemiptera: Adelidae, Adelges tsugae, Annand, HWA) is an invasive, aphid-like pest introduced from southern Japan that infests and eventually kills eastern and Carolina hemlock (Tsuga spp.).Since its discovery in Virginia in the early ’s, HWA has decimated hemlock stands across much of the eastern United States, spreading at a rate of – Author: Caroline E.

Emilson, Michael Stastny. Fig. 2 UNCUT YEAR 5–Hemlock woolly adelgid results in standing dead trees and thinning crowns; some modest increased light results in more hardwood undergrowth.

Biological controls are being used to reduce the impact of hemlock woolly adelgid across the landscape.

Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Adelges tsugae Annand Introduction: The hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) is a destructive introduced pest of forest and ornamental hemlock trees (Tsuga spp.) in the eastern United States.

The adelgid feeds at the bases of needles, causing them to desiccate and the tree to take on a gray cast.

The result is needle loss. We also have one large hemlock, further away, on which we drenched Bayer Advanced Tree & Shrub Insecticide. Since the smaller trees are near water, can a handy homeowner use Pointer insecticide to kill adelgids on them.

change is expected to increase the impact of hemlock woolly adelgid in the future. Healthy hemlocks, growing on deeper soils with good water availability, are more likely to survive infestation. Maintain the hemlock component on these sites, release young hemlocks, and avoid significant disturbance.

The hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), Adelges tsugae (Annand), is an exotic pest native to Asia and western North America. It was first discovered in eastern North America in near Richmond, VA. In the late s, HWA began to rapidly spread in hemlock forests from its point of introduction.

The beetle eats only one thing: the hemlock woolly adelgid (uh-DEL-jid), and it does so voraciously. Researchers are hopeful this new beetle will be a. The workshop will cover strategies for managing these significant pests in landscapes as well as forests and will including indoor presentation and outdoor demonstrations.

The program has been submitted for continuing education credits for Ohio pesticide applicators (core, forest pest, and ornamental pest categories), the Society of American. Scale insects are common insect pests on ornamental trees and shrubs in landscapes.

They feed, with their tube-like mouthparts, within the vascular system, where nutrients and fluids are transported. Scales rarely kill a plant by themselves but may predispose plants to attack from wood-boring insects or open up wounds that provide entry sites. McClure MS.
