On December tenth the United States Department of Agriculture gave the Conservation Crew an Asian Longhorn Beetle training at the New York Botanical Gardens. This beetle was transported from Asia through wooden crates. It arrived to Brooklyn,NY in 1986. The Asian Longhorn Beetles make circular markings on a tree bigger than a pencil but smaller than a dime. They may be spotted from June through November. The target trees for the ALB are Maples, Elms, Willows and Birches. Please keep your eyes out for this pest.
If the Asian Longhorn Beetle is spotted, place in a glass jar and freeze.
