What we do

Early intervention research focuses on monitoring, detecting and treating small areas of relatively low but growing populations (hots spots) of spruce budworm before infestation or epidemic levels.

What is Spruce Budworm?

Spruce budworm is a native insect that is considered by many as the most serious pest affecting the forests of eastern Canada. Every 30-40 years populations of spruce budworm increase resulting in an outbreak or epidemic.
