Welcome to the NYBADBUG Web site
This site has been created to be a single place to find information on important forest pests in New York’s urban and wild forests. For now we are limiting the site to the three most important BADBUGS threatening New York’s forest resources, the Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB), the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), and the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA).
The goals are to:
• Provide the locations where BADBUGS can be reported.
• Provide sources of information on BADBUGS.
This is site is currently under construction so please be patient; we felt it was important to get the information online as soon as possible.
