Detection is a key element in any plan for the prevention of the proliferation of exotic forest pests. With this in mind, researchers at the Canadian Forest Service (CFS) have been working for a number of years on developing detection tools, including molecular diagnostic kits that are specifically targeted towards those pests that pose the greatest threat to our forests.
