Provides links to state-specific resources with an interest in the prevention, control, or eradication of invasive species.

Items of Interest:

Emerald Ash Borer
Colorado Department of Agriculture.
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) was found in Boulder, CO, in September 2013. As a non-native insect, EAB lacks predators to keep it in check. EAB only attacks ash trees in the genus Fraxinus (so mountain ash are not susceptible). EAB is responsible for the death of millions of ash trees in the Midwest. Help protect Colorado's ash trees! Don't move firewood, and consider chemical treatments to protect high-value ash trees.

Boaters: Mandatory Inspections in Effect
Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Mandatory state-certified boat inspections are required to help prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) in Colorado lakes and reservoirs.

New Zealand Mudsnails -- learn how to identify, stop the spread and report sightings
Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

State wildlife officials first discovered New Zealand mudsnails in South Boulder Creek in 2004 and are taking action to prevent them from spreading. The New Zealand mudsnail competes with native invertebrate species and can destroy forage important to trout and other native fishes. Learn more how to identify the New Zealand Mudsnails, how to stop the spread and how to report sightings.

Rusty Crayfish -- learn how to identify, stop the spread and report sightings
Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

The Colorado Division of Wildlife is monitoring the state's waters for the introduction of an aggressive invasive species, the rusty crayfish. Rusty crayfish were found for the first time in Colorado during routine sampling operations in 2009 in the Yampa River drainage between Steamboat Springs and the town of Yampa. Because of their larger size and more aggressive nature, rusty crayfish can impact fish populations by consuming small fish and fish eggs, and negatively impact fish and spread unwanted aquatic plants by aggressively harvesting underwater plant beds. Learn more how to identify the rusty crayfish, how to stop the spread and how to report sightings.
