If you think you've seen an invasive species, please report the sighting! If you are in an area not regulated for the identified pest, early detection and response are especially important. Make sure to record where you saw the species and, if possible, take photos of the species and the host tree. This will help experts identify the species and evaluate the risk. Note that under federal legislation, there exists a duty to report all invasive plant and animal pests to the CFIA. Follow the information below to find out who to contact:
