How do I know if a species is invasive or not?

Since all invasive species are native somewhere and may not pose a threat in all environments, it is important to check with your local government or agency to know what is considered invasive in your area. Many states, cities, and managed areas such as parks will have lists of invasive species specific to their area.

 

You can also check with your iMapInvasives administrator and ask what invasive species are being tracked in your state or province.
