2024 Invasive shothole borer Online Symposium

Invasive shothole borers (ISHB) are invasive beetles well established in many areas of Southern California and the Central Coast. The ISHB-Fusarium Dieback disease complex has killed thousands of trees. It continues to spread and recently was confirmed in San Jose, threatening the integrity of California’s urban and riparian forests.

Designed for land managers, arborists, and other professionals whose work includes tree health and/or pest management (as well as anyone seeking an in-depth understanding of the pest-disease complex), the 2024 Invasive Shothole Borers-Fusarium Dieback Symposium will take a deep dive into the current distribution, impacts and risks, best practices in control and management, and practical examples of successful management approaches.
