Pest May Be Making Its Way Back to Maine

Updated 2 years ago

A pest might be making its way back to Maine. The spruce budworm devastated Maine’s forests three decades ago. Spraying was done over East Millinocket in the early 80’s, which successfully rid Maine of the bugs, but experts say they might soon descend upon our state again. There’s a budworm outbreak in some parts of Canada, and there have been signs of the bugs in Maine.
