A Box Tree Moth Certification Module is currently under development for Clean Plants.  However, it is extremely important for growers of boxwood to implement best management practices (BMP) to protect their crops and to prevent this pest from infesting their crops.  Therefore here are the latest BMPs for Box Tree Moth which growers are encouraged to adopt. 


These BMPs do not currently meet any Clean Plants certification standards, and are simply provided to support industry management and control of this invasive pest.

Note that these BMPs continue to evolve as we learn more about the science of the pest and regulatory framework in both Canada and the USA.  Please check back regularly for any updates.​
