    Description

    Laricobius nigrinus is a natural predator of hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), native to the western hemlock forests of North America. Research over the past 8 years at Virginia Tech has shown that this prey-specific predator is highly adapted to HWA. Several ongoing studies were reported on and will briefly be mentioned here.
