Agricultural Pests. Forest Pests. Social Marketing (general) Invasive Species Slogans - 3rd Edition. We are developing a series of posts to highlight some of the more memorable and fun slogans on invasive species that you can find on publications, bumper stickers, and t-shirts. This series on invasive species slogans will include occasional posts covering different aspects of the topic. These slogans seem to fit into three broad categories: Play-off, Alliteration, and Rhyming. The first two posts dealt with Play-off and Rhyming slogans. Here in this third post, I am going to concentrate on Alliteration. If you know of some slogans that haven’t yet been posted in this series, please send them to rivertoriver@gmail.com.

*UPDATE: The fourth post on this series, on Mascots, is now available HERE. Alliteration For those of you unfamiliar with this term, I will cite the good folks over at Merriam-Webster.com: "Alliteration - The repetition of usually consonant sounds in two or more neighboring words or syllables".
