Abstract:
New pests and diseases are coming to the Carolinas. One is the brown marmorated stink bug, a native to Asia, which was introduced in the country in 1998. Two types of scale--the oak lecanium and the gloomy scale--attack oaks and red maples respectively. In June, 2013, the emerald ash borer was found in three state counties--Granville, Person, and Vance. This Asian beetle was first found in southeastern Michigan in 2002 and has since spread to eighteen states. Boxwood blight, found in the state in 2012, attacks American and English boxwoods.
