An Update on New and Emerging Pests in the Pacific Northwest

Foresters and horticulturists should be aware of the risks of invasive species and should be updated on a regular basis regarding emerging pest threats. In the Pacific Northwest, many new potential threats to natural landscapes and forests have emerged. Recent detections include new species of whiteflies, lace bugs, sawflies, beetles, and earthworms. In addition to detections of new species, some are concerned about the expansion of host associations from prior-established exotic species. This article covers several emerging pest threats to forests, landscapes, and crops grown in the Pacific Northwest. This paper was presented at the joint annual meeting of the Western Forest and Conservation Nursery Association and the Intermountain Container Seedling Growers’ Association (Troutdale, OR, September 14–15, 2016).
