Pest Program

The goal of the Pest Program is to protect the state's resources by preventing the establishment of high-risk invasive insects, terrestrial snails, plant diseases and noxious weeds. The program's core functions are detection, identification, inspection, eradication, and outreach.

Staff conduct surveys and inspections, enforce agricultural quarantines, provide laboratory diagnostic services and carry out projects to eradicate such pests as Spartina, gypsy moth, and Japanese beetle.
