Please Report Sightings of this Beetle

6795.pngThe Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) has been discovered attacking trees in the United States. Tunneling by beetle larvae girdles tree stems and branches. Repeated attacks lead to dieback of the tree crown and, eventually, death of the tree. The ALB probably travelled to the United States inside solid wood packing material from China.

The ALB has one generation per year. Adult beetles are usually present from July to October, but can be found later in the fall if temperatures are warm. Adults usually stay on the trees from which they emerged or they may disperse short distances to a new host to feed and reproduce.

Adult beetles are ¾ to 1¼ inches long, with a shiny jet black body and mottled white spots on the back. The long antennae are 1½ to 2½ times the body length with distinctive black and white bands on each segment. The feet have a bluish tinge.

For more information regarding the ALB, visit the DEEP Forestry Division’s website at www.ct.gov/deep/forestry.

To report any suspected findings, contact:

Deputy State Entomologist Dr. Victoria Smith
(203) 974-8474 or

CT State Entomologist Dr. Kirby Stafford
(203) 974-8485
