Threats and Stressors in progress

Shot Hole Borer Surveys and Management Techniques

This project will contribute to development and dissemination of the essential building blocks of an effective lntegrative Pest Management (lPM) program used to prevent further spread and to manage impacts. The objectives are to: 1. Determine FD-SHB distribution with respect to key LBVI and SWFL habitat along the San Luis Rey River; 2. Evaluate preventative and curative biological, mechanical, and chemical control measures appropriate for different vegetation type 3. Train land managers on field identification of FD-SHB in Native Vegetation.

Project Protocol

Invasive animals

Goal: The overarching goals for addressing invasive animal species in the MSPA are: (1) Protect intact, unspoiled habitat from new or expanding invasive animal species; (2) Detect new invasive species and new invasions early on and control them before they have a chance to establish; (3) Address invasive species using the response appropriate for the level of invasiveness ensuring higher priority invasive animal species are addressed first
