Exotic Species in New York: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly Saturday, July 12 at 6 pm
Increased international trade over the past two decades has made it difficult to monitor the influx of foreign products pouring into NY from across the globe, resulting in an alarming increase of hitchhiking pests associated with imported cargo. Paul Wrege, Plant Health Specialist with USDA, will discuss the agency’s efforts to combat pest introductions, including work overseas, inspection of imported high risk cargo, and environmental monitoring.
