The insect, roseau cane scale, is attacking Roseau cane, a plant that grows profusely along the coast. It is considered vital to the fragile marsh’s longevity because the plant’s root system binds the delicate soil. Finding a solution to controlling the insect that threatens the key vegetation in coastal Louisiana will require extensive research by the LSU AgCenter working with several other state agencies.
