Subject: Asian longhorned beetle Anoplophora glabripennis reported in New Jersey
Date posted: November 19, 2002
Jersey City, New Jersey reported the Asian longhorned beetle Anoplophora glabripennis (ALB) is now in their backyards. This is a new state record but not likely a separate introduction as it is only 3 ½ miles from the original ALB discovery in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY. Approximately 100 trees were found infested in a 9 acre area of a residential and commercial building complex. The N.J. Dept. of Agriculture is enforcing a quarantine within a 1-1/2 mile radius of the infested area. USDA-Forest Service, regulatory officials and researchers are all working to determine the spread, introduction pathways, and control tactics for ALB.
