HELP! We're Under Attack by Invasive Species!

We're being invaded by INVASIVE SPECIES...they are taking over different regions killing off native plants and animals! Help, we're under attack!!!

We have tons of kudzu in our area, in fact, it's taking over the entire south region of the United States! Just this year, we have begun to see the kudzu bug that has traveled north from Latin American and has now reached us here in Wellford due to our warmer winter temperatures. A positive for the kudzu bug is that it can eat the quickly growing kudzu, but unfortunately this new insect pest is killing other valuable crops necessary for farmers to sell. Currently, there is no know options of how to get rid of kudzu and the kudzu bug without harming other important species!

Below is an electronic book our classes created to help your learn more about these pesky, harmful, and uninvited organisms.

What invasive species does your region have to deal with and how are they harming the local plants and animals around you? We'd love to hear your stories!
