Nick Dietschler, of the NYS Hemlock Initiative, discusses ways of managing the invasive hemlock woolly adelgid. The Huyck Preserve in the Capital Region, uses an insecticide and more recently a predator fly that eats adelgids. Hemlock woolly adelgid is also impacting hemlock trees on the eastern shores of Lake George. Dietschler and his colleagues will also be releasing silver flies there this year.
