The North Shore region of Quebec currently faces the threat of a spruce budworm (SBW) outbreak. This looming threat has catalyzed efforts by researchers with Natural Resources Canada’s Canadian Forest Service (CFS) to diversify the tools available to control this insect pest and, more specifically, to test a mating cage design developed to evaluate a control strategy based on mating disruption.
