    Description

    The brown spruce longhorn beetle, Tetropium fuscum (F.) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), (BSLB) native to northern and central Europe, has been the focus of a containment and eradication program by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, since May 2000. Surveys are conducted using host volatile-baited traps and visual ground surveys. Detection of BSLB-infested trees is done mainly by visual inspection of stems for typical signs of infestation, such as excessive resin flow or characteristic elliptical exit holes about 4 mm in diameter.
