Ask a Question

If you have an invasive species related question for NISIC, wish to give us feedback, or would like to suggest a resource, please submit the form below to send us a message.

A valid email address is required for a response. Questions are answered by the NISIC Coordinator or by a staff Librarian.

If you have a general agricultural-related question, please contact NAL's reference staff for assistance.

For invasive species policy-related questions and media requests for interviews, please contact the National Invasive Species Council staff.

Please Note:

  • The large numbers of invasive species prevent us from maintaining detailed information on ALL invasive species. In addition, determining the invasiveness of a species depends on a number of local factors, including the type of habitat.
  • We do not set laws or legislation, nor can we address legal issues.
  • We cannot identify species nor do we handle reports of suspected invasive species. Please note: In Washington State only, people should report potential sightings of the Asian Giant Hornet through the Washington State Department of Agriculture’s website. Outside of Washington, contact your state apiary inspector.
  • We also cannot answer specific homework questions for you, but we can assist with your research. We have very limited staff resources and we are unable to participate in interviews for school projects.
