Report A Sighting

If you think you've seen an invasive species, please report the sighting! If you are in an area not regulated for the identified pest, early detection and response are especially important. Make sure to record where you saw the species and, if possible, take photos of the species and the host tree. This will help experts identify the species and evaluate the risk

EDDMapS Ontario was developed through the support and funding provided by the Canada/Ontario Invasive Species Centre, the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. In Ontario, there are numerous agencies and monitoring programs in place that collect information and/or identify the distribution of invasive species.
