Thought it might be interesting to start a list of invasive Plants and animals and any good methods of control. If others could post pics that would be great.

Ailanthus (tree of heaven) remove by pulling out stumps and pulling all roots.

Japanese stilt grass (cut each year or burn each year just before it goes to seed)

Japanese barberry (cut and burn all thickets with berries and pull root system up.)

Garlic mustard (manual removal and makes a good pesto)

What can the layman do about that? The most loathsome species are indigenous: biting/stinging insects and poison ivy.

You can use any organic horticultural oil or soap to control woolly adelgid. Loathsome as some stinging insects migjt be they are actually quite beneficial environmentally. Most hornets and wasps eat many other pest insects. The chemical agents used to control stinging insects are far worse that the insects themselves. If you think poison ivy is bad check out giant hogweed, an invasive that is for the moment rare in the gunks.

Good thing this flooding happened before the japanese stilt grass went to seed. Hopefully the towns will not cut the grass in september while this grass has seeds as this further spreads it.

I heard the Mohonk Mtn House is encouraging the spread of stilt grass in a ploy to further devalue neighboring land. They may even be suggesting that the town time their cutting so as to maximize the seed dispersal.

Obviously the storm itself and associated flooding is also a nefarious plot by the evil Mohonk Mtn House and the Preserve to further devalue neighboring land, all orchestrated by that fiendish organization, the Smiley family.

check out giant hogweed

I did and was amazed. I can imagine a vindictive person spreading its seeds around someone's residence. One's best weapon against it might be the goat.
