USA and Canada: Asian Gypsy Moth (Aug.2014 Update)


asian gypsy mothThe United States and Canada have issued a bulletin advising of reports of high population levels of Asian Gypsy Moth (AGM) in some countries regulated for AGM.

AGM has recently been detected, in some instances in high numbers, on vessels arriving in North America.

These detections have led to delayed entry into ports in the United States and Canada and could result in refusal of entry.

The purpose of the bulletin is to remind vessel operators of the precautions that can be taken to avoid any potential delays.

A copy of the bulletin can be read here.
