Invasive wood-boring Asian Longhorned beetles (ALB) pose a significant risk to northeast forests, as generalist pests. Adult beetles are now emerging. The species is currently contained in four small quarantined areas in the northeast US. To help stop the spread, report your sightings to USDA (or call 1-866-702-9938) and burn firewood where you buy it. Use USA-NPN Pheno Forecasts to guide when to look for adult beetles and submit your observations to our Pest Patrol Campaign.
