Invasive Hemlock Insect Found in Kittery Point (Nov 5, 2010)
Maine Forest Service.
A new population of the invasive insect, Elongate Hemlock Scale, that damages hemlocks, has been discovered in southern Maine. The elongate hemlock scale was found for the first time in a natural setting of hemlocks, rather than an ornamental landscape setting, indicating that there is an additional threat to Maine's forest health. The scale also can exist in fir trees. Though the scale has not yet been discovered in Maine in natural fir stands, its presence and possible need for treatment could eventually impact the state's commercial Christmas tree industry, state officials predict. The discovery of elongate hemlock scale also follows recent findings that an associated invasive species that destroys hemlocks - Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) - has spread farther up the coast of Maine from South Portland to Bristol. For more information, see Hemlock Woolly Adelgid In Maine.
