Talkk in the Garden” series presents “Spruce Budworm: quick detection, early intervention and public engagement”, a presentation by Emily Owens, of the Canadian Forest Service.

Spruce budworm is the most severely damaging insect to northeastern America’s Acadian forests.  

There is concern that a massive outbreak in Quebec will spill over into New Brunswick and could cause an economic impact of $4.7 - 6.7 billion over the next 40 years, threatening ecosystems services (salmon industries), Christmas tree growers, watersheds, etc.

The first line of defence in any integrated pest management strategy is monitoring and early detection.
