Potential Invaders of Arkansas

At least when it comes to invasive pests, Arkansas is fortunate to be isolate from major ports of entry for cargo from overseas. Some of the invasive pests that are problems in other parts of the U.S. have not arrived here yet. We have some time to plan our response to these pests before they get here. We also have time to watch for these pests and locate them before they become well established in Arkansas.

These pages provide information about invasive pests that are destroying forests in other parts of the U.S. but have not been found in Arkansas yet. Please take some time to learn about these pests and help us find and report them as soon as they arrive.
