Provides links to state-specific resources with an interest in the prevention, control, or eradication of invasive species.

Items of Interest:

On July 18th, 2014, Arkansas Agriculture Department/Arkansas State Plant Board officials confirmed that the emerald ash borer, an invasive beetle that attacks and kills ash trees, has been found in Hot Springs, Clark, and Nevada counties. EAB now has Mississippi surrounded (see Don't Move Firewood - Mississippi Summary), and it is likely only a matter of time before it finds its way here. To prevent the spread of this and other non-native beetles, do not move firewood. Firewood is a vehicle for movement of tree-killing forest pests including EAB and Asian longhorned beetle. Use locally-sourced firewood when burning it at home. When travelling, burn firewood where you buy it. Make sure to burn all wood purchased.

Insect Identification Service
Mississippi State University. Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station.
The primary goal of this service is to provide Mississippi citizens with identification and management recommendations for insect pests that affect their homes, their gardens, or the crops they are trying to produce. The lab also works closely with the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and observant Mississippi citizens to help facilitate early detection of new invasive insect pests that appear in the state.
