Early Detection Reports
Early detection strategies, like road-side and nursery surveys, enable us to identify threats before they become widespread and out of control.
- 2011 KISC island-wide invertebrate survey.pdf – This report is the result of the most recent invertebrate survey on Kauai, funded by US Fish and Wildlife Service. The survey team specifically surveyed for nettle caterpillar, naio thrips, and little red fire ant.
