Did you know?
The elongate hemlock needle scale is a non-native pest introduced from Japan that affects hemlocks and ornamental plantings in the eastern United States. This insect is known to develop on 43 species, including 14 species native to the United States. Spruce and fir trees can also be susceptible to infestation.
This insect is most often spotted in the spring and summer months. Symptoms of infestation from the elongate hemlock scale include yellowing of the tree’s foliage.
Infestation can cause premature tree death, with many trees having a lifespan of no more than ten years following infestation. Trees affected by the elongate hemlock scale can become more vulnerable to mixed infestations from other non-native pests, such as the hemlock woolly adelgid.
