Report a Pest

Suspect a Pest?

Reporting is made easy through EDDMapS, an online pest and pathogen tracking platform! When you submit location information and images through EDDMapS, experts will rapidly screen your report and inform regulatory officials if action should be taken. Report a pest! 

If you want to communicate directly with a plant diagnostician or help collect data by submitting a sample of infected plant tissue or a pest, contact your regional National Plant Diagnostic Network (NPDN) lab. Contact a diagnostician!

Warehouse Pest Reporting

If you work in a warehouse and suspect the presence of an invasive forest pest, select your state and report the pest through USDA-APHIS.
