High risks remain in place across portions of southern Ontario and also into extreme southwest Quebec through this week. Moderate risks stretch from eastern Michigan into Ontario and Quebec but eventually focus just in Canada by the end of the week. Some moth activity is still being observed in Wisconsin, western, northern, and central lower Michigan, and also portions of New York state so Low risks remain in place across these areas through this week.
