An unwanted pest makes its way to our area
The Agency is reporting that the Southern Pine Beetle has been found in our area.
A Pine Beetle was found in a trap near Rapp Road in Albany.
It is the first time that a Southern Pine Beetle has been found so far to the North.
State DEC says these invasive pests can pose a significant threat to New York State's Pine Forests.
They are working to stay ahead of a possible infestation from these destructive pests.
