How to Identify Asian Longhorned Beetles
Asian Longhorned beetles have their distinctive
black, smooth looking bodies with white dots. There
are other insects that also look like Asian
Longhorned Beetles, like the Whitespotted Pine
Sawyer and the Oregon Sawyer. The following
pictures show pictures of the Sawyer beetles, and
the difference between male and female Asian
longhorned beetles.

Asian Longhorned Beetles
You may have seen signs on the streets while going somewhere, of Asian Longhorned Beetles, and wondering what they are. My mini ISU is on Asian Longhorned Beetles and I will help you understand a little bit more about their background, where they came from, how to identify them, and what to do if you encounter them! Asian Longhorned Beetles is an invasive forest pest which eats away broad leaf trees. These smart creatures arrived to North America and South America from China in ships and airplanes where items were being distributed. The only way to control the population of these fiendish pests is the destruction of all affected or soon-to-be-affected trees. This is a large problem, because if the Asian Longhorned Beetles eat and shred hardwood trees, there will not be many trees for houses and furniture in the future generations.

Cont. how to Identify an Asian
Longhorned Beetle
Asian Longhorned Beetles are two to four cm.
long when they are adults, with females being larger than males. They have distinct bluish-white legs and long black antennae with white bands. Also, adults leave a dime-sized hole in trees they shred.
Arborjet Beetle Treatment!
At last, we have found a way to protect/cure these threatened or endangered trees! Special workers from Arborjet have found a special formula which is injected into trees to save the trees and protect them. Here is a short video of Arborjet, and how it works!
Asian Longhorned Beetle's are from China and Korea where they are also a destructive pest. They attack Elm, Willow, Poplar and Maple trees. At first, Asian Longhorned Beetles were only found in the US in New York, New Jersey, and Ohio. They soon went North into Ontario in 2003, and were treated effectively. Since 2007, Asian Longhorned Beetles are rarely found, which shows that early indication and fast action helped a lot. I have made a map of where Asian Longhorned Beetles live in Toronto.
How To Report Sightings of the
Asian Longhorned Beetle
How They Were Introduced To Ontario
Asian Longhorned Beetles are from Asia,
mainly China and Korea (As exclaimed before,) and came here from airplanes, and the wooden packing material used in cargo shipments. The Asian Longhorned Beetle is one the many insects that can survive a whole chunk of time in shipment, and find other trees in their new area.
To help keep the Asian longhorned Beetle population low, you need to report any of them you see. If you see any Asian Longhorned Beetles, call the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources at 1-800-667-1940 or the Canadian Food Inspection Agency at 1-800-442-2342. You can also report sightings to the Invading Species Hotline at 1-800-563-7711 or online. To report them, though, you need to remember how Asian Longhorned Beetles look. Here is a quiz to test how much you remember; I hope you were listening! (There are prizes awarded to
correct answers!!!)
Life Cycle of the
Asian Longhorned Beetle

Where did the Asian Longhorned Beetles come
from, and how?
The Asian Longhorned Beetle
came to North America from Cargo Ships which transported items in wood from China. The insects survived the whole journey and found homes in Canadian trees.
Name one place you can call if you find an Asian Longhorned Beetle.
1. Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources
2. Canadian Food Inspection Agency
3. Invading Species Hotline
4. Online
Is it true or false that Male Asian Longhorn Beetles have larger bodies than females?
What is the name of the
company that injects a special formula into the tree to save and protect it?
Arborjet is the name of the company that injects a special formula into the tree to save and protect it.
