Beetle Mania

The Asian Longhorned Beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis) has been spotted for the first time this week in New Jersey, in the city of Newport. Kudos to the Hoboken man who spotted the beetle flying into a tree and called the NJ Department of Agriculture! Unfortunately it appears that a population has already established in the area, with over 100 trees affected. An emergency three-year monitoring program has been started in the city, and infected trees will be removed.

(Thanks to a member of the ALIENS-L listserver for posting about this story.)
