Strategies to cope with the introduction and spread of invasive species need to be identified and implemented prior to introduction and establishment to best alleviate negative consequences. Invasive forest pests such as Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), Gypsy moth, and Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) are most likely to be introduced into Colorado via firewood, logs, or nursery stock. Existing diseases and pests such as Thousand Canker Disease and Mountain Pine Beetle may need to be deterred from spreading from one region of our state to another., Colorado Department of Agriculture., "8/13/2014.", Online resource; title from PDF caption (viewed August 2017)
