Asian Longhorned Beetle
This Asian Longhorned Beetle site provides information about the beetle and its life cycle, how to identify it, how to scout for it, and most important, who to contact if you should be unfortunate enough to find one in a tree near you. The beetle has been found in NY, NJ, and Illinois, and this site links to detailed maps and information about those infestations found so far, as well as the somewhat draconian control measures being used in the face of this serious threat. Please help monitor for this terrible pest.
