White-Nose Syndrome Confirmed in Bats in Michigan (Apr 10, 2014)
Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and a consortium of partners announced today that the fungus known to cause significant rates of illness and death in North American bats has been detected for the first time within the state's borders. White-nose syndrome (WNS) has been found in three Michigan counties: Alpena, Dickinson and Mackinac. "These are the first confirmed WNS cases in Michigan. Even though we've known this disease was coming, it is a disappointing day," said Dr. Dan O'Brien, DNR wildlife veterinarian. "We will now shift gears and try to stop the spread of this serious disease."

Michigan's Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week: Jun 8-16, 2013
Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
Michigan's Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week is an opportunity to learn about aquatic invasive species, their impacts on Michigan waters, as well as what you can do to prevent their introduction and spread in your local area and throughout the state.

New App Lets You Report Invasive Species (Oct 15, 2012)
Ohio State University Extension.
Ohio State University Extension has released a new app for spotting and tracking invasive species -- non-native organisms such as Asian carps, purple loosestrife and Asian longhorned beetle -- to try to keep them from setting up beachheads and hurting the economy and environment. By using the free Great Lakes Early Detection Network app, a person can take pictures of suspected invasive species -- whether of farm, forest or water -- and upload the pictures and locations for verification. Based on this early warning, scientists can send out alerts, map the spread and figure out a battle plan. The network covers the states of Ohio, New York, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania.

Spotted Wing Drosophila Detections Are Increasing in Fruit Crops (Jun 19, 2012)
Michigan State University Extension.
Captures of spotted wing Drosophila (SWD) in monitoring traps have increased recently, with higher numbers of flies trapped as well as an increasing number of monitoring sites showing activity. At this time, SWD activity has been detected in Van Buren, Allegan and Ottawa counties. For information on how to build traps to monitor SWD, take a look at the information on the MSU IPM Spotted Wing Drosophila website.
