HELP! BE PART OF THE NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO EAB TEAM!
YOU CAN MONITOR EAB IN YOUR AREA! PUCHASE GREEN EAB PRISM MONITORING TRAPS THROUGH THE TASK FORCE (SAVE $ ON DELIVERY).
Thank you for attending this important regional conference on EAB. The NWO EAB Task Force is pleased to be able to provide this informative event at no cost to you thanks to our numerous partners and sponsors. One of the most important things you can do to help manage this invasive pest is to assist with monitoring efforts. Green Prism traps have proven to be the best detection option and are fairly easy to install and inspect.
Would you like to purchase 2 or more traps to monitor for EAB on ‘your’ property? Installation and monitoring information would be provided to you with the traps to be picked up at the Conference on March 28th. All collected data would then be shared via e-mail with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). If you would like to purchase green prism detection traps to be picked up at the conference, please place order on this Eventbrite page. Indicate how many you would like (must be ordered in pairs). Note: Traps are too large to transport home by air.
