Keeping the Legacy Alive

Slow the Spread

When not to be in infested areas if possible:                   


Mid-April until early August

This is when the crawlers are highly mobile!

Crawlers and eggs can be easily spread and cause new areas of adelgid infestation.

Remember that ten adults can produce up to 30 million new adelgid in two years!


Imposed wood movement restrictions in five southwestern Nova Scotia counties

December 19, 2017 – Ottawa – Canadian Food Inspection Agency

Following the recent detection of hemlock woolly adelgid in southwestern Nova Scotia, movement restrictions on regulated materials have been put in place for the counties of Digby, Queens, Shelburne, Yarmouth and Annapolis in the province of Nova Scotia.

In order to slow the spread of hemlock woolly adelgid and protect non-infested areas in Canada, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) restricts the movement of susceptible wood products from infested areas. As a result, wood products from these counties may be moved within the regulated area but may not be moved to non-infested areas.
