The Asian Long-horned Beetle

The Asian Long-horned Beetle

The Asian long-horned beetle (Anopliphora glabripennis) is a large insect native to Southeast Asia that was first discovered in the United States in the mid 1990s in New York.  The Asian long-horned beetle (ALB) differs from the EAB in that it is not a species-specific pest, but targets many different species of trees.  The ALB was discovered in Clermont County in 2011, and the Federal government has been working in conjunction with local governments, and professional arborists to combat it.  The ALB has not yet been found in Hamilton County, for more information please visit the sites below.
