Invasive Bark and Ambrosia Beetles: Their Impacts and Detection

April 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

April 15th @2PM Register 

Presented by: Robert (Bob) Rabaglia, USDA – Forest Service

Bark and ambrosia beetles are one of the most commonly intercepted groups of insects at US ports, and one of the most commonly established non-native species across the country. Although most of the more than 60 species of non-native bark and ambrosia beetles established in the US are not severely impacting US forests and trees, some species have had significant impacts. This webinar will highlight some of these species, and discuss what they have in common. The US Forest Service program of early detection of these potentially damaging species will also be discussed.

Robert (Bob) Rabaglia is currently National Entomologist for US Forest Service, Forest Health Protection in Washington DC.  He has been with the Forest Service since 2005 and coordinates national forest insect projects across the country.  He coordinates national funding and policy for projects such as, early detection/rapid response, gypsy moth, southern pine beetle and hemlock woolly adelgid. Prior to joining the Forest Service, he was forest entomologist in Maryland for 18 years. He received his MS and PhD degrees in entomology from the State University of New York, College of Environmental Science & Forestry in Syracuse, NY.
