How do current population levels in New Brunswick compare to other eastern areas of Canada? What areas of New Brunswick are currently most affected?

There is currently a ‘hot spot’ south of Campbellton New Brunswick. However populations are much lower than in Québec. Scattered budworm defoliation was observed from both the air and the ground in northern New Brunswick in the summer of 2015. Additionally, trapping and sampling data has shown that populations have been increasing in northern New Brunswick over the past 2 years.
