Frequently Asked Questions for the Invasive Species Security Field Tour

Why is this a good time to host a tour on Invasive Species?

Invasive insect species from all over the world arrive regularly at US ports of entry, posing potentially disastrous consequences for agriculture, forestry, and human and animal health. The economic impact is estimated at over $30 billion annually, due to crop losses and mitigation costs! This spring, the US Department of Agriculture appropriated $17.5 mio for the eradication of the spotted lanternfly in PA.
