Tier 1 – Early Detection / Prevention: Not in yet PRISM, with anticipated high or very high impacts. Highest level of survey efforts. Should conduct delineation surveys and assign to appropriate Tier if detected.
Within the Capital Region PRISM we track these species due to their highly aggressive nature. If these species are seen in the field it is important that you take clear pictures and upload the information into the iMapInvasives app or to contact a PRISM team member to follow-up on the sighting. If these species are found in our PRISM, chances of eradication within the PRISM are still high as they have not yet had the chance to establish large populations.
