Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB)
Asian long-horned beetle ALHB is an invasive forest pest with no natural enemies in North America that attacks nearly all broadleaf trees, with native Maples being the preferred host. Adults lay their eggs in hardwood trees, and larvae then tunnel through the living tissue of the tree stopping the flow of water and nutrients, killing it. There have been very few sightings of ALHB in Ontario and it is important to be on the lookout for this dangerous invader. Several native non-harmful beetles can be easily confused with ALHB, so take a close look at how to identify this beetle listed below. Asian long-horned beetle is native to China and Korea where it is considered a major pest causing mortality of Elm, Maple, Poplar and Willow trees.
