    Description

    Anoplophora glabripennis Motschulsky (Asian longhorned beetle) (ALB) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Lamiinae: Lamiini), is among a group of high-risk exotic woodborers native to Asia, specifically China and Korea (Nowak et al. 2001). In China, A. glabripennis is considered one of the most important forest pests, having been reported from 25 provinces and extending from 21°- 43° N Latitude and 100°-127° E Longitude (Yan 1985). This region extends across climatic zones that correspond to the climatic zones in North America from southern Mexico to the Great Lakes, and includes virtually all of eastern U.S. Feeding by larvae in the cambium and xylem causes widespread mortality among many deciduous broadleaf tree species in China (Yang et al., 1995), particularly Populus spp., Salix spp. and Ulmus spp. (Xiao 1992).
