Early detection of insect pest populations in our forests is absolutely essential to prevent certain infestations. Forestry specialists have gained valuable knowledge from their experience with the damage caused by the Spruce Budworm.
Some of the threats facing forests today include the Emerald Ash Borer and the Mountain Pine Beetle, as well as a host of new insect pests. When dealing with vast swaths of forest, insect monitoring is an effective technique for tracking the movements of insect pest populations.
With the help of this precise detection tool, it is possible to time spray treatments much more accurately and to carry out such treatments only as needed. In addition to helping prevent infestations, insect monitoring also allows you to minimize treatments and thereby reduce operating costs while limiting damage to the environment.
