Below, we take a look at where observers reported phenology of these species as part of the
Pest Patrol campaign
. In the next couple of months, we'll be analyzing how these observations lined up with our Pheno Forecasts, so stay tuned!
In total, 27 observers reported on 9 pest species at 31 sites this year. The most commonly observed species was eastern tent caterpillar, followed by gypsy moth and hemlock woolly adelgid.
The map below shows the sites where observers reported leaf-feeding insects this year. Colors of the dots correspond to the colors of the species across the top, and darker colors represent more data reported at that site. Green outlines indicate that the observer looked for more than one species at that site. The numbers represent the number of phenology records for that species, which include both "yes" and "no" reports for each life cycle stage question (eg "Do you see active adults?").
