BE ON THE LOOK OUT (BOLO) FOR THESE SPECIES!
These are emergent pests that have limited distributions across the state. State-wide establishment of these pests would cause significant negative impacts.
Field industry personnel such as conservationists, landscapers, farmers, ranchers, along with the general public are urged to be aware and report these species, especially in areas where detections have not occurred.
Early detection and rapid response to new detections are critical to keep areas free of these harmful invasive species.
Report these pests to the statewide pest hotline: 643-PEST (643-7378), www.643pest.org or download the free Android or iPhone “643pest” smartphone app.
