Bugs approaching

Wayne Berisford, an entomology professor emeritus at UGA, was quoted in an article about the declining population of Georgia-native eastern hemlocks due to an insect called the hemlock woolly adelgid, in Nursery Management and Production magazine.

“Hemlock woolly adelgids are working their way to the western extension of the state,” said Berisford. “They haven’t occupied all of the possible range yet, but they are approaching.”
