Introduction Hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae, HWA) is an aphid-like invasive pest of hemlock trees in eastern North America. The HWA is native to all hemlock species in western North America and Asia, and hemlock trees in these regions are unaffected by HWA infestations.1 However, hemlocks in the eastern United States have not adapted to [ ].

Hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) is an introduced insect pest of eastern hemlock trees. It kills trees quickly and threatens eastern hemlock forests throughout their georgraphic range. No control tactics are currently available against this pest in the forest setting. We will study the life history of HWA to enhance our knowledege and ability to develop pest managment tools.

Silvicultural approaches Management Strategies for Eastern North American forests Threatened by HWA, a webinar by USDA scientist Mary Ann Fajvan. The life cycle of the hemlock woolly adelgid is complex, involving both hemlock and spruce (Picea spp.). Each year three generations develop on a hemlock tree.

In the spring two generations hatch from the eggs laid in the white cottony ovisacs found on the branches of hemlock trees. Hemlock wooly adelgid are difficult to control because the fluffy secretions protect it from pesticides.

Late October is a good time to attempt control as the second generation begins to develop. Insecticidal soaps and horticultural oils are effective for HWA control with minimal harm to natural predators. Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Biological Control. Hemlock woolly adelgid, Adelges tsugae Annand (HWA) (Fig.1) is native to Asia and western North America.

HWA was first discovered in the eastern United States (U.S.) in near Richmond, VA. It is believed to have originated in southern Japan and introduced on nursery stock. the two—generation—per—year eyele on hemlock.

THE THREAT TO SPRUCE As indicated, the development of winged migratory adults of A. tsugae in June implicates spruce in the life cycle of this adelgid. If hemlock woolly adelgid could survive and reproduce on spruce, its ability to attack hemlock would be enhanced because some.

This publication discusses the biology, life cycle, and identifiable characteristics of hemlock woolly adelgid, along with impact and management techniques for the control of this pest in both forested and landscape settings.

Target audiences include forestry professionals and : Molly Darr, David Coyle, LayLa Burgess. Biology and Ecology Understanding the biology and ecology of hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) is essential to developing effective management strategies.

We have a good understanding of the basic life history of the insect, but much is still unknown about its interactions with. Carolina hemlock (Tsuga caroliniana) is a relic species limited to a small area in the southern range of eastern hemlock.

Both species are being threatened by the accidentally introduced hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) (Adelges tsugae). Control of the HWA is a challenge. An unusual life cycle, presence of susceptible hosts. Eastern hemlock Hemlock woolly adelgid Invasive species Integrated pest management Sunlight ABSTRACT The rapid loss of eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) in the southern Appalachian Mountains due to hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae, HWA) infestation has resulted in substantial changes to ecosystem structure and function.

HEMLOCK WOOLLY ADELGID Adelges tsugae What is the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid. The hemlock woolly adelgid, or HWA, is an invasive, aphid-like insect that attacks North American hemlocks.

The hemlock woolly adelgid, Adelges tsugae Annand, is a tiny aphid-like insect that covers itself with a waxy wool ().It is native to eastern Asia and is thought to have colonized western North America ab y ago, so it is also considered native to that region (Havill et al.

).In both Asia and western North America, this insect is not normally considered a pest and only Cited by: 7. Control of the Hemlock Wooly Adelgid. The Hemlock wooly adelgid (Adelges tsugae) is a destructive little creature, causing devastation to evergreen forests from Canada, through the northeastern United States and southward into north Georgia.

Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) Adelges tsugae Annand. Introduction. Adelgids are conifer-feeding insects, related to aphids. Hemlock woolly adelgid, Adelges tsugae Annand, (HWA), feeds on hemlock species and was first described from samples originally from Oregon by P.

Annand in California in In the eastern United States, this non-native insect pest was initially reported at a private. Biology and life history The adelgid overwinters as woolly adults.

Reddish-brown crawlers, similar to scale crawlers, appear in spring and early summer. Hemlock adelgids are sometimes known as "hemlock chermes." Pest monitoring Inspect woolly areas for the presence of live adults or tiny black dots on the needles which indicate the scale.

The nonnative hemlock woolly adelgid is steadily killing eastern hemlock trees in many parts of eastern North America. We summarize impacts of the adelgid on these forest foundation species; review previous models and analyses of adelgid spread dynamics; and examine how previous forecasts of adelgid spread and ecosystem dynamics compare with current by: 1.

Hemlock woolly adelgid has now spread to cover 50% of the geographic range of eastern hemlock. In the past 20 years, this invasive pest has left most of the trees it has enountered either dead or in a highly weakened state. Sincethe major emphasis for addressing the problem has been investment into biological control.

The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) is an aphid-like insect that attacks and kills hemlock trees by feeding on nutrient and water storage cells at the base of needles.

Importation of infested Japanese nursery stock is thought to be the source of HWA in the eastern United States. This publication covers the distribution, biology, damage, and biological control of hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) and is a substantial revision of FHTET, Biological control of Hemlock Woolly Adelgid in the Eastern United States, by Mark McClure,   Hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae) infestation on the underside of an eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) branch in Knox County, Tennessee.

A sap-feeding insect native to Asia, the hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae) or HWA was first found in in eastern North America, where it has since devastated native hemlock populations. The hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), Adelges tsugae, is one of the most damaging non-native insects in North America, responsible for the death of millions of eastern hemlock trees throughout the eastern part of the continent.

HWA feeding causes slow death of trees, and its characteristic white cottony appearance is easily visible on infected trees. Biological control of the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid, see Biological Control. How you and your community can participate in HWA biological control, see Community.
