Michigan Releases Statewide Plan to Combat, Manage Land-Based Invasive Species (Apr 20, 2018)
Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
The Department of Natural Resources today announced the availability of Michigan's Terrestrial Invasive Species State Management Plan, a comprehensive strategy to prevent and control land-based invasive plants, animals, insects and tree diseases and to reduce their environmental and economic effects. The Terrestrial Invasive Species State Management Plan (PDF | 5.78 MB) and responses to public comments (PDF | 1.0 MB) on the document are available in the Control and Management section of the invasive species website.

Spotted Wing Drosophila
Michigan State University. Integrated Pest Management Program.
The Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD) is a vinegar fly of East Asian origin that can cause damage to many fruit crops. This small insect has been in Hawaii since the 1980s, was detected in California in 2008, spread through the West Coast in 2009, and was detected in Florida, Utah, the Carolinas, Wisconsin and Michigan for the first time in 2010. This website will be the central location for dissemination of information about this insect. Check back for updates. This team is also helping to coordinate research projects to understand how best to protect fruit from infestation by this new pest.
