Management Notes for this Location:
In the summer of 2001, 1300 beetles (Diorhabda elongate) were released, and in two seasons increased to number in the millions. This resulted in the defoliation of over 400 acres of salt cedar in research sites in Nevada. Similar results have been seen in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming (Deloach and Carruthers, 2003).
