Canadian Flag Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) confirmed in Laval, Québec
Date posted: 08/22/2012
Contact: Not available
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has confirmed the presence of emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis, in the Ville de Laval, Québec. The beetle was discovered in a trap set by the CFIA near the Des Prairies River in the Laval-des-Rapides district.

Movement restrictions which prohibit the movement of all ash materials such as logs, branches and wood chips, as well as all species of firewood from the affected site have been put in place. Property owners in the affected area have been notified of these restrictions. Further regulatory measures will be considered once all survey work has been completed.

The presence of EAB has been confirmed in four areas in Québec and in 27 Ontario counties. The CFIA continues to work with federal, provincial, and municipal governments towards slowing the spread of EAB.

Under IPPC Standards (e.g. ISPM No. 8), EAB is considered present only in some areas of Ontario and Québec, and is subject to official control in Canada.

Additional information is available on the CFIA website at www.inspection.gc.ca/pests or by calling 1-866-463-6017.
