Hear the story of species of beetle, its introduction into the United States and eventual migration into New Mexico.
Dr. Carol A. Sutherland, an extension entomologist at New Mexico State University and also State Entomologist for the New Mexico Department of Agriculture, will give a presentation, 7 p.m. March 11 at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center. The program is free, and no advance registration is necessary.
Since its introduction into the U.S. nearly 200 years ago, saltcedar has demonstrated it can out-compete native vegetation for available water, causing serious economic and environmental problems as this noxious weed has spread throughout the West. While saltcedar can be controlled with burning, herbicides, goats and mechanical means, these methods are temporary and expensive.
Since no effective natural enemies of saltcedar occurred in the U.S., scientists spent many years screening various natural enemies of saltcedar in Eurasia and North Africa.
