Early Detection and Rapid Response

Early Detection and Rapid Response (EDRR) increases the likelihood that localized invasive species populations will be found, contained, and eradicated before they become widely established. EDRR can slow range expansion and avoid the need for costly long-term control efforts.​  Species on this list should be reported immediately via eddmaps.org or from your smartphone on the IveGot1 app!  For tips on reporting invasive species click here.
