    Description

    The hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae Annand) is an introduced pest thought to be native to Asia. Damage to eastern hemlock and Carolina hemlock can be serious (Salom et al. 1996), but western and Asian hemlocks are seldom damaged. Potential biological control agents have been observed in Japan and China (Sasaji and McClure 1997, Yu et al. 2000). We compared two of these which have been previously imported, Scymnus ningshanensis Yu et Yao, a coccinellid from China (Yu et al. 2000) and Pseudoscymnus tsugae Sasaji & McClure a coccinellid from Japan (Sasaji and McClure 1997).
