Effects of Imidacloprid on Soil Macrofauna within Riparian Hemlock Forests


April 2016 - September 2019


This research is designed to determine the richness and diversity of soil and benthic microinvertebrates and salamander species associated with imidacloprid treatment and to assess the risk of imidacloprid treatments. Synthesis of this information could culminate in the reassessment of hemlock woolly adelgid treatment program based on the results of this project.
