- Japanese beetle is an invasive pest that is regulated in Canada because it is a threat to the environment. This pest was found in the False Creek area in August 2017.
- Japanese beetle can cause significant damage to lawns, ornamental landscapes, fruit trees, golf courses and parks and harm BC’s agriculture sector.
This technical briefing will provide complete information about the pest, its habitat, the new regulations and how you can minimize any effect on your business.
