The CFIA has published the results of the annual Plant Health Surveillance Program for 2021-2022. The report includes a provincial breakdown of the detections or spread of plant pests of concern and how the CFIA responds to these findings.  Canada is considered free of the Asian longhorned beetle and the Emerald ash borer, while Spongy moth (aka European Gypsy Moth) was detected in BC at a record number of sites. The high numbers are believed to be the result of vehicle movement from Eastern Canada where this pest is currently at outbreak levels. Two moths of the flight capable Asian Gypsy Moth were found in Langley and eradication aerial sprays were conducted after this detection.
