Many species of ambrosia beetles can infest woody ornamental, fruit, and nut trees throughout North Carolina and can cause significant damage in nursery, landscape, and orchard settings.

A group of scientists in the Eastern US who are collaborating on ambrosia beetle research (including the NC Apple Team) are conducting a survey to better understand the severity of ambrosia beetles on both a spatial and economic scale. The results will be used to help set research and extension priorities, and in grant proposals to document the importance of ambrosia beetles to stakeholders.

The survey will only take 5 to 7 minutes, so please participate and Help your Apple Team Help You! Read more
