This list is only used for ambrosia beetle alerts. We offer frequent alerts about the activity of landscape and nursery pests via Twitter. Visit our home page to see previous alerts. Click "follow @ornapests" to signup. We monitor pest activity and send alerts about the pests that are active.

Spring is here!


We are also monitoring traps here in Western NC and will be letting you know as soon as we see them here.
