Items of Interest:

Let Us Know If You See Any Winter Moths
Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry. Maine Forest Service.
Winter moth was first recorded in Nova Scotia in the 1930s and then in the Pacific Northwest in the 1970's. It showed up in eastern Massachusetts in the early 2000's and has since spread into coastal Maine from Kittery to Bar Harbor. Fill out the Winter Moth Survey to help us gather information about the distribution of these moths across Maine. The results will be used to help with biological control development and other research.

What Is Your Wood Hiding?
Maine Forest Service.
Moving firewood can transport exotic insects & diseases
that pose a serious threat to our forests. Don't transport firewood -- BURN IT WHERE YOU BUY IT!

Vital Signs
Gulf of Maine Research Institute.
Vital Signs is a statewide effort to address invasive species. Our collective research focus is on locating invasive species and documenting the native species and habitats vulnerable to invasions. Together we are using scientific tools and habits of mind to look for native and invasive species in local habitats. We are sharing what we find and do not find online. We are contributing to a greater understanding of and connection to our shared environment.

Emerald Ash Borer Resource Page
Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry.
The emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis, is one of the most serious invasive species threatening our ash resources and forests. All species of ash that grow in Maine are susceptible to injury and death by the emerald ash borer. There are currently EAB infestations in 23 states and two Canadian provinces. The closest infestations to Maine are in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The emerald ash borer has not been found in Maine. If you suspect emerald ash borer in Maine, please report it online, or call: 207-287-3891.
