    Description

    Five piercing and sucking insects which were accidentally introduced from Asia during this century, together with one native species, have become very serious pests of two important forest tree species in the northeastern United States. Two armored scales, Fiorinia externa Ferris and Nuculaspis tsugae (Marlatt), and an adelgid, Adelges tsugae Annand, attack eastern hemlock, Tsuga Canadensis Carriere (Fig. 1). A margarodid scale, Matsucoccus resinosae Bean and Godwin, and two adelgids, Pineus boerneri Annand and Pineus coloradensis (Gillette), attack red pine, Pinus resinosa Aiton (Fig. 2).
