Banded Longhorn Beetle (Typocerus velutinus) Detailing the physical features, habits, territorial reach and other identifying qualities of the Banded Longhorn Beetle. The Asian long-horned beetle is thought to have been transported to North America in wood pallets, resulting in infestations in New York in 1996 and several years later in New Jersey, Chicago, Illinois, and Toronto, Ontario. Males range in length from about 2 cm (about ½ to nearly 1 inch), measured from the front of the head to the end of the abdomen, with antennae about as long as their bodies.

[1][4][5][6][7][8] The first confirmed detection in South Carolina was June 4, 2020, at a residence in Hollywood, Charleston County. Female locust borers lay their eggs in black locust trees. Ironically, … [1] However, when they do disperse, they can travel up to approximately 2.5 km (1.6 mi) from their host tree in a growing season in search of new hosts, although in a mark-recapture experiment about 98% of adults were recaptured within 1 km (0.62 mi) of their release point. Characteristics, Scientific Name, Classification, Taxonomy, Territorial Claims, and pictures of the Ant-like Longhorn Beetle (North America) ☰ MENU ☰ MENU × Home. Asian Long-Horned Beetle (ALB) is an insect native to several Asian countries, including China and Korea. Fungi such as Beauveria brongniartii can increase mortality in larvae and adults while Metarhizium brunneum and Beauveria asiatica can reduce adult survival time. Infested areas are re-surveyed at least once per year for 3–5 years after the last beetle or infested tree is found. Distribution: Southwest US. English: Asian longhorn beetle; Asian long-horn beetle; basicosta white-spotted longicorn beetle; smooth shoulder-star longicorn; starry sky beetle Long-horned beetle, (family Cerambycidae), also called longicorn, any of about 25,000 species of beetles (insect order Coleoptera) whose common name is derived from the extremely long antennae of most species.These beetles occur throughout the world but are most numerous in the tropics. The roundheaded apple tree borer (Saperda candida) can be a major apple pest. When ready to pupate, the larva bores a tunnel to the outside, pupates within the tree, and, as a new adult, uses this tunnel as its exit. [1][18] Adults will typically infest the crown and main branches first and will begin to infest the trunk as the crown dies. The larvae live in pines and firs and bore tunnels up to 10 mm (0.3 inch) in diameter. The Golden-haired Longhorn Beetle, or Hornet Beetle, is a nationally scarce species. Each one of the thousands of different species have their own scientific name. [1], In its native range, A. glabripennis primarily infests plants like maple, poplar, willow, and elm trees.

In New York, over 6,000 infested trees resulted in the removal of over 18,000 trees; New Jersey's infestation of over 700 trees led to the removal and destruction of almost 23,000 trees,[23] but infested trees continue to be discovered. In Europe, complete development has been recorded on maple, Aesculus, alder, birch, hornbeam, beech, ash, planes, poplar, Prunus, willow, and Sorbus. [1][14][15][16], Adult females lay 45–62 eggs in their lifetime by chewing a small pit through the bark of the host tree to the cambium and lay one 5–7 mm (0.20–0.28 in) long egg underneath the bark in each pit. Anoplophora glabripennis, a longhorn beetle in the family Cerambycidae, is an Asian species that has spread across the world and become a pest in many of these locations.By boring into Chinese trees and as a result being transported in lumber transportation, Asian Longhorns or Starry-sky beetles have set foot in both America and Europe. During the summer months, adult females chew through the bark and deposit an egg, causing a visibly dark wound in the tree that is about 1.3 cm (0.5 inch) in diameter. Sometimes sap can be seen oozing from the exit holes with coarse sawdust or "frass" in evidence on the ground or lower branches. common name: citrus longhorned beetle scientific name: Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) (Insecta: Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) Introduction - Synonymy - Distribution - Description - Life Cycle - Host Plants - Damage - Management - Selected References Introduction (Back to Top).

Adults are shiny black in colour with irregular white spots and are large, ranging from 1.9 to 3.8 cm (0.75 to 1.5 inches) in body length. As a result both Clemson University's State Crop Pest Commission (which regulates crop pests for the state government) and the federal APHIS declared a quarantine. Due to high tree mortality caused by larval feeding outside its native range, A. glabripennis can change both forest and urban ecosystems. Measures such as removal and destruction of trees, quarantine of infested areas, strict regulations on the transport of wood, and insecticide treatments restrict the Asian long-horned beetle to isolated areas. [2], In North America, established populations were first discovered in August 1996 in Brooklyn, New York and has since been found in other areas of New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Illinois, Ohio, and Ontario in Canada.

It is listed as a federally threatened species; a proposal to delist the insect was withdrawn in 2014. The Longhorn Beetle can be donated to the museum. Prionus giganteus. Insecticides within the tree may not translocate evenly, which allows some A. glabripennis to survive treatments. This sort of data can be useful in seeing concentrations of a particular species over the continent as well as revealing possible migratory patterns over a species' given lifespan. Insecticides such as imidacloprid, clothianidin, dinotefuran have been used to target adult beetles in canopies or as trunk injections to target larvae. Untreated wood and wood products are likely pathways for human-assisted spread of this pest.

A. glabripennis can be distinguished from related species by the markings on the wing covers and the pattern of the antennae. In Canada, complete development has been confirmed only on maple, birch, poplar, and willow, although oviposition has occurred on other tree genera. A larva can consume up to 1,000 cubic cm of wood in its lifetime. The yellowish or white larvae are often known as roundheaded borers, because the front part of the plump larva is expanded to give it a rounded appearance. Dogs can also be trained to detect the smell of frass on trees.
