Next time change the name of the file so it doesn't say its name ;)
1. Sirex woodwasp, Sirex noctilio
2. They are wood-borers; adults don't eat anything, but the larvae are voracious eaters of the inner bark of trees
3. Native to Europe, and central Asia. Introduced into New England

Image
1. Order, Scientific nomenclature, common name
2. List 3 invasive properties of this organism
3. Where are they native to?
4. What is the role of the specimen in this specific picture?
5. Explain their reproductive process. How are new nests created? How many of this species are in each nest?

Okay, I am just going to jump in here so....

Answer! (Don't know about 4 & 5)
1. Blattodea, Copototermes formosanus, Formosan Subterranean Termite
2. a) Large foraging range
b) Extremely difficult to completely eradicate
c) Consumes wood at rapid rate
3. Southern China
4. Worker
5. After a nest produces alates they fly to a ideal location. Then female mates with males to lay eggs and form royal chamber. After 2 to 4 weeks the eggs hatched and by there second instar stage - the female lays a second batch of eggs. This repeats till a colony is created (can take months for full colony). [No clue on any specific number]

Here is one!
question scioly #1.jpg


1. Order, common name and scientific nomenclature
2. Name two locations that this species has established itself (besides native area)
3. What does this species "attack"?
4. The larvae of this species feed on what?
5. Describe possible biological controls for this species. Provide one natural enemy of this species.

OK here
1. Light Brown Apple moth (Epiphyas postvittina) Lepidoptera
2. Honolulu and California.
3. Fruits, vegetables, and trees.
4. Foliage and fruit
5. Tachinid fly can be used.

Here we go
1.It is Chinese Tallow/Triadica Sebifera.
2. They reproduce through seeds.
3. They are an ornamental plant and can be used for vegetable oil.
4. Ummm. I think Bottomlands(By rivers), Old fields, and coastal prairies. It can live in a variety of soils.

What is the binomial nomenclature and common name of this organism? What efforts have been made to control this? When this invasive species' population was reduced which other invasive species' population exploded? Where is this species native? Where has it spread and how? What else can we do to make them extinct?

OK then
1. Sea Lamprey Petromyzon marinus.
2. Trapping, removing female lamprey, and releasing sterilized males.
3. I couldn't find that :oops:
4. The east coast and gulf of Mexico.
5. It attaches itself to hard surfaces like boats so it can move using that.
6. Question 2.

Good job Jaol! It's your turn even though you missed some.
Number 3 is Alewife (a fish) , Number 5 they are native to the Atlantic Ocean(you forgot to say that). Number 6 is we can also eat them(they are a French Delicacy)
