Asian Longhorned Beetle
Anoplophora glabripennis

Asian Longhorned Beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis ) is an insect pest of hardwood trees. It is a native of China and was first detected in New York in 1996.

This beetle poses a serious threat to forests of the northeast and maple syrup production. Infestations in Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey are under eradication by USDA APHIS. This is just one of many forest pests that are moved to un-infested forests by humans moving firewood. Help to protect our forests: don't move firewood!

This insect pest has been identified by USDA-APHIS as a serious threat to US Agriculture and Natural Resources, and surveys have been planned for multiple states.
