Purdue, DNR To Host Workshops On Invasive Forest Pests


Purdue University is teaming with the state Department of Natural Resources to spread the word about invasive insects that pose a threat to Indiana’s forests.

Purdue Entomology Professor Cliff Sadof and DNR Urban Forester Carrie Tauscher will lead three workshops next month in southern Indiana on invasive, three-killing insects.

Each workshop will include presentations on the emerald ash borer, the Asian longhorned beetle and other pests, including how to identify and manage them.

Participants will also learn about technology citizen scientists can use to report the tree-killing pests to officials across the state.

The free workshops will be held July 11 at the Purdue Extension’s office in Bloomington, July 12 at the Purdue Extension office in Aurora and July 13 at the Brown County Fairgrounds in Nashville.
