Help the Hawaii Early Detection Network-
Report invasive pests online.

The Hawaii Early Detection Network was created to increase public awareness of invasive species and engage communities in the monitoring of their own neighborhoods. Find out how you help protect the environment of Hawaii by participating in the Eyes and Ears Team and attending an educational workshop or downloading your own field guide.

INVESTIGATE IT! Early detection begins with looking for the plants and animals on the early detection hit list for Hawaii, Maui, Lanai, Molokai, Kauai, or Oahu. Download your own field guide for your neighborhood.

inspect it

INSPECT IT! Once you find a plant or animal that looks like one on the early detection hit list compare it to the descriptions and photos on this website. Don't forget to compare to the "look alikes." Take this quiz to see if you know your pests.

collect it

COLLECT IT! If you are unsure about what you found, it's time to collect it. Use your smartphone or camera to collect images or collect a sample of your plant or animal. Use the guide to make sure you do no damage in the process. Use the online report form to ask for identification help.

report it

REPORT IT! Now you're ready to tell someone about your findings. Report your pest online, by phone, or in person.
