The adult beetle is about 1 to 1. There is so much to find out. The ADW Team gratefully acknowledges their support. Others are birch, willow, elm, ash — the list goes on from there.

DEEP: Asian Longhorned Beetle
These craters chewed into the bark can be any shape from nearly circular to a long trench. It appears that these standards are working. They would serve as an important tool for evaluating the efficiency of surveys, but would not replace the need for surveys and tree inspection. Each tree that was removed was carefully inspected by researchers for signs of ALB damage and then destroyed. The loss of this species could have devastating social impacts in Canada.
Tell your friends, family, and neighbours about the threat from ALB. At greatest risk are the sugar maples and red maples—the backbones of the maple syrup and fall foliage tourism industries. This restricted the movement of wood and wood products out of this zone NRCan, Arguably, nowhere else in the United States do so many people in one state live in such close proximity to so many trees. Its life cycle consists of four stages:
