Little fire ants and coqui frogs are continuing to make headlines on Maui. The Maui Invasive Species Committee is on the front lines of the battles to prevent and control these and other invasive pests & diseases. Adam will be discussing the current progress of the control of the little fire ants and coqui frogs on our island and how the landscape community plays a key role in the management of these issues. This is not only a landscape industry problem but a potential economic issue for our island. Adam will also answer questions on other potential pests & diseases and how to not only protect our island landscapes but Maui’s ecosystem.
