ASIAN LONGHORNED BEETLE (ALB) CONTROL UPDATES

Monday, January 23rd, 2023  | 2-330pm 

The Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) is an invasive insect that was first discovered in the U.S. in 1996. Since that time, it has been found in five states. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has noted that ALB poses a significant threat to America's hardwood trees. USDA has had success in eliminating ALB from some areas. However, eradication efforts are ongoing in Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, and South Carolina. Although not yet found in the western U.S., all states are at risk and re-infestation is always a possibility with interstate transport of wood and plants. ALB threatens recreation and forest resources valued at billions of dollars. This webinar will focus on the identification of this pest and the integrated management strategies that include quarantines, tree inspections, infested and at-risk host tree removal, and insecticide treatments. This webinar will provide the attendees an opportunity to obtain continuing education credits from the following state agencies and organizations: * Department of Agriculture for Pest Management Professionals: TBD
