The gypsy moth( fact sheet HYG 2173-98) and emerald ash borer( fact sheet HYG 2049-05) are becoming a real threat. Bagworms( fact sheet HYG 2149-10) and the black vine weevil( fact sheet HYG 2016) are problematic.Bed bugs (fact sheet HYG 2105) are becoming a real problem. None of these pest are native to our area and more information on these and many more insects can be found on ohioline.osu.edu in the fact sheets listed above.
