Unwelcome Visitors Take PEI By Storm: A Tale of Prince Edward Island
Since their introduction to Prince Edward Island agriculture in the mid-1800's, potatoes have grown to become one of the largest contributors to Prince Edward Island's economy, and the food security of Islanders. However, this position was threatened near the end of the 19th century when a group of unwelcome visitors that go by the name of Colorado Beetles traveled to PEI.
