Other efforts to thwart the borers are also under way. Quarantines on transporting firewood that might be incubating the winged invaders are widely in place.

Our aim is, through controlled laboratory experiments, to find a nontoxic and effective alternative to current treatments by examining the effects of natural health products on different cancer cells including Hodgkin lymphoma. Specifically we want to determine if sage and long pepper extracts have anti cancer activity. We have observed that the ethanolic extracts of long pepper and sage are effective in reducing the viability of two Hodgkin lymphoma cell lines (L 540 and HD MyZ) in a dose and time dependent manner.
