With Green Spring Upon Us, Invasive Insects Emerge

Apr 20, 2018

This is not a drill. Our long awaited spring has finally arrived. As we anticipate and enjoy the emergence of green, it's also time for the emergence of insects.

On this Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe is joined by Laura Iles, Director of the Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic at Iowa State University, who acts as our guide to some of Iowa's most recent invasive insects.

Mark Vitosh, forester with the Department of Natural Resources, and Richard Jauron, Iowa State University Extension horticulture specialist, also join the conversation and answer listener questions.
