8 Years Ago Idaho Was Invaded… And Now It’s Happening Again

It’s not often that Idaho has to deal with too many natural threats, but nearly every ten years the Gem State has to protect itself from a worrisome invasion. Taking over by storm, this year a species of insects is causing more damage than expected in our state and it doesn’t look like the situation is going to be getting better anytime soon.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
