TERC Answer: To answer this, we reached out to URI entomologist, Dr. Richard Casagrande, who has had a plastic deer fence surrounding his yard for the past 8 years. He's also in the market now to replace his fence. He told TickEncounter that he'll be replacing his plastic fence with metal hexagrid fencing ( www.invisible-deer-fence.com/products/rolls/metal-hexagrid). After 8 years with the plastic fencing, he has quite a few patches where deer broke through and lots of patched holes from rabbits. While he explained that the metal costs quite a bit more, he believes it will last at least twice as long, and will keep the rabbits out, too. He'll be installing it himself.

Invasive insects and weeds threaten forests, landscapes, and agricultural enterprises and affect all of us, much as the chestnut blight and Dutch elm disease affected communities in decades past. In New England, the emerald ash borer is already established, the hemlock woolly adelgid and winter moth are expanding their ranges, and the brown marmorated stink bug and spotted wing drosophila have made an appearance. Invasive plants are changing natural and managed landscapes in our area. Dr. Casagrande will show us how to easily identify specific invasive species and what biological controls and other management options are available to control both existing and new insect pests and weeds.

Casagrande asserted when gardeners hear which foreign type of insects have been introduced to aid control invasive plants similar to purple loosestrife, there is a knee-jerk reaction: "Great.

Casagrande has become using biocontrols to scale back populations of the lily leaf beetle that has been decimating our asian and Asiatic lilies in recent times. The beetles are very pretty that you'd like to use them because earrings: bright red with dark trim, with regards to 3/8ths of an inch lengthy. Their caterpillar, in contrast, are generally disgusting: That they carry their particular excrement lying on their backs to deter wild birds - and organic landscapers. Casagrande and his co-workers possess introduced parasitoids coming from Europe, very small wasps that decrease the beetle's population. The parasitoids are doing the task at examination sites throughout Rhode Island as well as Massachusetts, and therefore are established from release internet sites in New Hampshire and Maine.
