Charlie Burnham Report: May 12, 2008

The Friends had news on May 12, 2008 from State Forester Charlie Burnham in regard to the Hemlock Woolly Adelgids and our release of ladybugs. Here is what he wrote:

I haven’t been there to look for beetles in a couple of years, but this past winter some of them showed up an another location where we hadn’t been able to find them since the release. This caused an increase in interest on recovery, so this summer we are going back to all the release sites to see if they got established. I have been in contact with Erica Uramkin and she want[s] to come along when I do the looking. Right now it looks like this will be in June. I’ll let you know what I find.
