Japanese Beetle Education Opportunities in Vancouver
Japanese beetle is an invasive insect that was detected in British Columbia for the first time in 2017 in the False Creek area of Vancouver. The adult beetles attack the flowers, foliage and fruit of more than 250 plant species, while the larvae feed on the roots of turf grass and other plants. Japanese beetle poses serious environmental and economic threats within BC. In 2018, partners including
Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Ministry of Agriculture, City of Vancouver and the Invasive Species Council of BC collaborated on management efforts
to quickly treat and contain the beetle.
ISCBC Is offering Japanese beetle education and outreach opportunities to interested groups. Event options
range from casual discussions to more formal presentations and are available in the Vancouver area January - April.
