MA Residents Asked to Watch for Asian Longhorned Beetles
The U.S Department of Agriculture is advising Massachusetts residents to keep an eye out for Asian Longhorned Beetles, an invasive species whose emergence peaks in August.
The beetle was first spotted in the United States in 1996. Rhonda Santos is a spokesperson for the USDA. She says the Asian Longhorned Beetle destroys trees by laying its eggs beneath a tree's bark.
