Experts Search for Small, Destructive Beetle (Emerald Ash Borer) (Apr 28, 2011)
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 jeffery.l.head@aphis.usda.gov to participate in EAB surveying or to report a potential EAB find.

Research to Support Integrated Management Systems of Aquatic and Terrestrial Invasive Species: 2011 Annual Report (2012; PDF | 4.14 MB)
Mississippi State University. Geosystems Research Institute.
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).
