Tamarisk Beetle

September EcoQuest: Tracking Tamarisk Beetles


Event Description

Tamarisk beetles were released as a biological control for invasive tamarisk trees in 2001. They were not expected to survive Arizona’s arid climate, but they have expanded their range much faster and farther than predicted – bringing tricky ecological situations with them.

Observing tamarisk beetles and their larvae can contribute to the efforts of organizations that are tracking their range, activity, and phenology, such as RiversEdge West.
