Invasive species cause billions in damages every year

Date: 05 April 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • Disease-carrying mosquitoes, crop-ravaging rodents, forest-eating insects and even the domestic cat are all causing damages to humans and environment, according to a newstudy.
  • Researchers estimate that invasive species have cost nearly $1.3 trillion dollars to the global economy since 1970, an average of $26.8 billion per year. And they warn that this is likely an underestimate.
  • Most of the price tag is associated with the damage to ecosystems, crops or fisheries, although pest-control measures were also included in the research.
  • The top ten invasive pests includes crop-eating rats and the Asian gypsy moth, which is attacking trees throughout the northern hemisphere.
