Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Control

What is Hemlock Woolly Adelgid?

The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (Adelges tsugae) is an invasive insect native to East Asia that targets Hemlock trees (Tsuga species). These tiny, aphid-like insects feed on the sap of Hemlock trees, causing stress, decline, and ultimately, death if left unchecked. Hemlock Woolly Adelgid infestations can occur year-round, with peak activity typically observed in the spring and fall.
