Brown Spruce Longhorn Beetle arrives in New Brunswick on firewood.
« on: September 01, 2011, 04:39:53 AM »
OTTAWA, August 31, 2011: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has confirmed the presence of the brown spruce longhorn beetle (BSLB) near a campground within the Kouchibouguac National Park in New Brunswick. This is the first find of BSLB in New Brunswick and the first outside of Nova Scotia.

It is suspected that the pest was transported to New Brunswick on firewood. This new find is nearly 165 kilometres away from the closest positive BSLB site located in Westchester Station, Nova Scotia.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)
