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

Items of Interest:

Asian Longhorned Beetle
University of New Hampshire. Cooperative Extension. NHBugs.
The Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) was found in Worcester, MA in August 2008 and in Boston in July 2010. This insect pest poses a serious risk to trees and forests. ALB has not yet been found in New Hampshire. Help us by looking at the debris from your swimming pools. Whenever you clean your pool, look at the debris you collect in your filter and skimmers. Use this fact sheet (PDF | 447 KB) to compare collected insects to common insects. Upload pictures of any insect you think is a longhorned beetle.

Update on BMSB in New Hampshire
University of New Hampshire. Cooperative Extension.
As of February 2015, brown marmorated stinkbug (BMSB) has been confirmed in 20 New Hampshire towns/cities. With the exception of a confirmation on nursery stock (shipped several months earlier from Long Island, NY), no specimens have yet been found on any crop. The vast majority of specimens have been found on or in buildings. We need your help. We want to find out where BMSB occurs in New Hampshire. Let us know if you see this species in or on your New Hampshire home. Verbal descriptions are not much use, but clear, close-up photos or specimens are helpful. We want to track this insect in NH and how it builds in numbers.

Boxwood Blight
New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets, and Food.
First identified in the United Kingdom in the mid-1990's, it has also been confirmed from New Zealand and across Europe. The first detection in the U.S. occurred late fall 2011, with detections in North Carolina, Connecticut, and Virginia. Since those initial detections, this disease has been found in boxwoods at other locations as well. The Division of Plant Industry participated in a trace forward of boxwoods recently shipped to the state from a nursery in an infested county in Connecticut and did not find evidence of boxwood blight. The nursery industry and customers growing boxwoods should, however, be aware of and on the look out for this new disease. Please see the Boxwood blight information sheet (PDF | 1.52 MB) for more information on symptoms, life history, susceptible hosts, and suggested management of this disease. Please contact the Division if you believe you have nursery stock or landscape boxwoods infested with boxwood blight.

Statewide Ban on Importing Firewood
New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands.
As of Jul 2011, New Hampshire has banned the importation of untreated firewood without a commercial or home heating compliance agreement. Firewood is a major source of damaging insects and diseases. This ban will help protect the health on New Hampshire's forests.
