Checking For Termites
Formosan Termites Found Near Alexandria
(Distributed 04/29/04) LSU AgCenter entomologists confirmed that termites found the week of April 18 at a home in Pineville were Formosan subterranean termites. This is the first sighting of the pests in the Alexandria area. These termites pose a greater threat than the native species because they form larger colonies, are more aggressive and form carton nests above ground.
Chagas Disease in Louisiana
Chagas disease is a zoonotic disease, which means that it is a disease of animals that is transmitted to humans under some conditions. The causative agent of Chagas disease, Trypanosoma cruzi, is a protozoan parasite that infects an estimated 24 million people in Central and South America. During 2006, the first indigenous case in Louisiana was reported.
Lobate Lac scale
Regional Pest Alert Scales
The lobate lac scale, native to India and Sri Lanka, was first reported on hibiscus in Broward County, Florida, in 1999 and was found on several other hosts in Broward and Miami-Dade counties in 2000. The scale was found in six additional southern Florida counties by 2004, and it has rapidly become a major pest. This publication was produced and distributed by USDA–CSREES Integrated Pest Management Centers in cooperation with the National Plant Diagnostic Network, APHIS, and ARS.
