Storyboard Text

  • The Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) was accidentally imported from Asia. The beetle was discovered in New York in 1996.
  • They will have a shiny black body with white spots. Their antennae are long with black and white rings. They range from 2.5 cm to 1 inch long!
  • Be aware of the Asian Longhorned Beetle
  • The beetle's lifecycle revolves around a host tree. Females chew into the tree to lay eggs. When the eggs hatch, larvae chew deeper into the the tree. Then after they mature, the pupae chew an exit hole. This weakens the tree causing it to ooze sap and eventually die!
  • The only way to stop the ALB is to chop up infested trees and burn the chips and stump!
  • YOU can help stop the spread of ALB! Use firewood from your local area!
  • Gallatin County Extension Agency (406) 582-3280
  • If you discover an Asian Longhorned Beetle, report the sighting to your local Extension agent.
