It's spring, which means many invasive Hungry Pests are emerging and will soon begin feeding on trees, plants and crops. These destructive species – which include the emerald ash borer, gypsy moth and citrus greening disease – cost the nation $40 billion each year in damages and expensive eradication and control efforts. Fortunately, individuals can help slow or even stop Hungry Pests from spreading. That's why April has been designated “Invasive Plant Pest and Disease Awareness Month.” See What You Can Do for more information.
