Survey Questions
As you may already know, pests often hitchhike long distances in cargo and plant materials. The spotted lanternfly is one such example of an invasive species that has reached the mainland US this way. It is not currently known to be in Hawaii.  I’m going to just ask you few questions about your existing levels of awareness and practices
1. How likely do you think your staff is to recognize invasive pests of national concern such as spotted lanternfly or brown marmorated stinkbug?
2. Does your company currently use any Best Management Practices to reduce the chances of pests of national concern (such as spotted lanternfly) from arriving in nursery stock and becoming established? If so, can you describe them

3. Where do you source plant material? *

4. Do your staff currently have access to material or signage they use to help guide best management practices or identify pests? If so, what has been most useful?
Your answer
5. If we provide material or signage as part of this course, are there any languages other than English that would be helpful to training materials translated into?
6. Would you be interested in your company, staff participating in a free one-hour training on pest identification and best management practices? We are looking into HDOA and LICT Continuing Education Units  (CEUs) for participation.
