Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey (CAPS) Pest Alerts

We are currently monitoring these exotic pests as part of the Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey (CAPS). If you think you've discovered a pest not native to Rhode Island, and particularly if you suspect the pest to be the Asian Longhorned Beetle or the Emerald Ash Borer, please us to let us know. And help slow the spread: Don’t Move Firewood!

Report an Exotic Agricultural Pest, Invasive Insect or Plant

NOTE: If you believe you have found an Asian Longhorn Beetle or Emerald Ash Borer, please make every safe and reasonable effort to capture or closely photograph it to aid in identification, as there are several native species with a similar appearance.
