Since 2009 the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) has tracked the movement of Africanized honeybees (AHB) in the State of Utah. UDAF has set traps, monitored feral colonies and tested suspected managed honeybees. As of 2017 these efforts have revealed that AHB are currently present in: Iron, San Juan, Kane, Garfield, Wayne, Grand, Emery and Washington counties. UDAF will continue to monitor AHB in the state and will notify local governments, beekeepers, and the public when AHB move into new areas.

If you plan to use your own boat or angler float tube, you’ll need a permit and a free Yellowstone aquatic invasive species inspection. You can speed up the inspection process by arriving with a boat that is clean, drained, and dry. Watercraft that arrive dirty or with standing water will be subject to decontamination. Watercraft that cannot be properly decontaminated will be prohibited from launching.

Native to Asia, the Emerald Ash Borer is an exotic beetle that was unknown in North America until June 2002 when it was discovered as the cause for the decline of many ash trees in southeast Michigan and neighboring Windsor, Ontario, Canada. It has since been found in several states from the east coast spanning across the midwest and in June 2006, we discovered that it had taken up residence in Illinois.
