Do Eradication Programs for Exotic Wood Borers Result in Mite Outbreaks?

2004 | Michael J. Raupp, University of Maryland, Jan Nyrop, Cornell University
Higher levels of mites and greater amounts of mite injury appeared to be related to the application of imidacloprid against Asian Longhorn Beetle in Central Park. This project will determine if trees treated with imidacloprid sustain greater mite injury, or have different natural enemies. The influence of hardscape around trees will also be determined.
