USDA announces Asian longhorned beetle found in four states, dogs being trained for detection

​Asian longhorned beetles have been detected in Bethel, Ohio which is not far from southeastern Indiana. Beagles and labrador retrievers are going through training to detect ALB. you can find more information on the Beetle Buster web site.

If you think you’ve found an Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) or signs of infestation, always record the area where the specimen was found.  If possible, capture the insects you think are Asian longhorned beetles, place them in a jar and freeze them — this will preserve the insect for easy identification. Take digital pictures of the insect and damage to your trees in case officials request them.  And REPORT IT!
