This app allows PSHB infestations to be reported with “two pics and one click“. Reporting the infestation allows the spread of the PSHB to be measured and tracked. Local organisations are then  automatically notified and appropriate action can be taken.

Just “two pics and one click” of a button..     DONE..!!

We want two pics of every tree:

One close up pic of the bark showing the beetle hole
One pic of the whole tree

We need to fully notify government of the magnitude of this devastating invasion of this bug.
