    The Wooley Adelgids is a invasive insect like a aphid. It comes from Japan and feeds on the under branches of hemlock trees and kills them. We have huge forests of hemlock in Maine. If these insects eat our forests, then the populations of plants animals and insects that depend on the hemlock might die. If we find it soon enough we can use predator beetles to keep the populations down.
