The globalization of markets and the expansion of international trade are increasing the risk of introduction of exotic species into Canada. Exotic forest pests are not averse to travel – far from it. They will take advantage of any opportunity to travel that comes their way. Wood is their preferred means of transport: pests can always find a place to hide in wood packaging, firewood or imported nursery stock. Should forest certification take this situation into account? Are these pests the subject of research?
