BDN, Spectrum News report on new spruce budworm lab

The Bangor Daily News and Spectrum News reported on a new testing lab at the University of Maine that will help state landowners monitor their trees for the presence of the destructive eastern spruce budworm. Angela Mech, UMaine assistant professor of forest entomology who heads the lab, told Spectrum News “now that the outbreak is here, landowners need a rapid response to help them uncover how much area is affected and what kind of management strategies they might want to explore.” WOKQ (97.5 FM) shared the BDN story.
