The hemlock woolly adelgid, Adelges tsugae (Hemiptera: Adelgidae), was first reported in eastern North America over 50 years ago. Efforts to control the impacts of the adelgids are focusing on classical biological control and tree resistance. The success of these strategies relies on knowledge of the ecological and evolutionary context uniting the pest, its host plants, and its natural enemies.
