Early detection and reporting is needed to prevent the spread of these non-native plants, animals and insects. Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County offers free invasive species identification. Call for more information on species of most concern in the Catskills or visit www.nyis.info – that stands for New York invasive species information. If you find a plant, insect or animal on your property or elsewhere that you think may be invasive, bring a sample to Extension’s office in Hamden for identification and recommendations. Wear gloves when handling any plants or insects. Call 865-6531 for directions or more information. You may also email a photograph with contact information to Janet Aldrich at JLA14@cornell.edu.
