While we will stick to home and garden insects, diseases, weeds and vermin, the list may also interest Agriculture/Horticulture/Natural Resource researchers, educators and Master Gardeners.

To join, email: with the word “subscribe” in the subject line.

Why would you want to join yet another WSU LISTSERV? Here’s a sample of recent notices:

  • Japanese beetle news
  • Watch for mountain ash sawfly
  • Anthidium manicatum found in Granite Falls
  • Be on the lookout for brown marmorated stink bugs
  • Springtails are aggregating, etc.

Short and to the point, news you can use.

Feel free to contact Todd Murray ( with any questions.

    The state report form requires a jpeg image to report an insect

    Would very much like an e-mail report site for Pierce County MGs to use.
