Pest Control American Samoa

There are several pests posing a threat to the environment in American Samoa. Melinis minutiflora is an invasive species that is a fire hazard and has facilitated the establishment of fire regimes on some islands. It is also a significant cause of erosion on some islands, such as Samoa and other Polynesian areas. Passiflora tarminiana is another invasive species that is found in many islands, including the Pacific Islands.

Invasive species in American Samoa include bamboos, Cestrum nocturnum and diurnum, Hedychium spp., and Hemigraphis alternata. The government is currently working to replace the old courthouse in Apia with a modern hotel. In the meantime, Samoa needs a solution to combat this problem before it becomes out of control. Invasive species can cause damage to buildings and ruin cultural institutions.

The project will initially begin with English language instruction on the island of Tutuila. The project manager, Mr. James Ferrell, will conduct the workshop on Tutuila. The workshop participants will receive a Samoan version of the project manual. In year two, instruction will be held in Samoan, and participants will observe IPM and conservation best management practices. If successful, the project could continue into the Manu’a Islands.

While there are numerous invasive species present in American Samoa, two of them are particularly problematic. Both species produce prolific seeds, which birds spread. While eradication of both species is not feasible, control measures could be evaluated. The invasive plant species are known locally as Samoan peanuts. By limiting the disturbance to these areas, local control is a possibility. And as the population of the island increases, the need for pest control also increases.
