The Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), Anoplophora glabripennis, is a woodboring beetle native to China. ALB develops and reproduces within healthy and stressed deciduous hardwood trees, such as maple, birch, horsechestnut, poplar, willow, elm, and ash. Attacked trees will eventually die.
Currently, the Asian longhorned beetle is known to be in Massachusetts, New York, and Ohio, where quarantines are in place to reduce its spread. It was rediscovered in Toronto, Canada in 2013 (click map to see infested areas in North America).
ALB is a regulated pest and suspect sightings should be reported.
