Project Background

As part of the agreement between the Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development and the Society to Prevent Dutch Elm Disease (STOPDED), surveillance of elm trees must be done in municipalities where the Dutch elm disease (DED) vectors have been found. Since smaller elm bark beetles (SEEBB) and banded elm bark beetles (BEBB) have been captured in a number of Alberta (AB) and Saskatchewan (SK) municipalities along the AB/SK border, and since SK has reduced their DED provincial management/prevention program, the goal was to survey all elm trees in approximately 30 municipalities along this border the first year while the elm trees are leafed out. DED detection is dependent on the public, therefore public awareness of disease identification and prevention are essential. A public awareness campaign was conducted in each surveyed municipality by distributing brochures and posters, speaking to key municipal personal and Agriculture Fieldman and encouraging STOPDED public awareness material to be viewed including the STOPDED “Last Stand” DVD.
