Stratford Area Watershed Improvement Group: A Glimpse into the Exciting World of Watersheds on Prince Edward Island

Spruce Budworm Monitoring Program Over and Done for Another Year!

SAWIG has participated in the Spruce Budworm Monitoring Program for a few years now, and we have just finished up for another season. It’s always a weird kind of mix of “yes, we have some samples”…followed by “oh NO, we don’t want any budworm moths here!”. Strange indeed!

Here you can see the tally up and prep for sending to the Budworm Tracker people 🙂

Mmm, nothing like counting some dead moths (and yup, they smell a bit after months…)
