WHEN IN DOUBT, TAKE THE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS

FOR TERESTRIAL SPECIES :

  • Be mindful of potential propagation when using outdoor equipment (camping gear, clothing, ATV, etc.).

  • Choose non-invasive species for landscaping.

  • Eliminate invasive plants before seeds are produced by removing all root systems or rhizomes, taking extra care not to break the structures.

  • Do not move invasive species or soils they have come in contact with, especially if seeds have formed.

  • Dry plants thoroughly before discarding or burning them.

  • Use gloves and long-sleeved clothing as a precaution when traveling or working in forested areas, in fields or on road ditches.

 

for aquatic species:

  • Clean boats and all equipment used.

  • Do not empty an aquarium into the toilet or water bodies

Please note that mobile washing stations are available for use by the public in the region.
