Mississippi State University. Office
of Agricultural Communications.
Federal and state government experts
have teamed up with Mississippi State University
to search for emerald ash
borers that could mean big trouble for Mississippi.
Quick detection of EAB is necessary so that
eradication programs can begin before the
bug causes costly damage to the state's
ash trees. Contact Jeff Head at (662)
323-1291 or firstname.lastname@example.org
to participate in EAB surveying or to report
a potential EAB find.

This report presents the final status on a program of planned research, extension, and regional coordination implemented by the Geosystems Research Institute (GRI) of Mississippi State University (MSU) in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). We pursued three areas of directed, peer-reviewed research to enhance the management of invasive species: aquatic invasive plants, developing a National Early Detection and Rapid Response webpage, and the rene-gade biocontrol agent, cactus moth (Cactoblastis cactorum).
