Asian Long-Horned Beetle
A planting project on Long Island will replace trees destroyed by Asian Long-Horned Beetles.
It’s a tiny, little thing smaller than a penny and about a half-inch long, but it can cause major damage.
A bad bug is raising its ugly horns on Long Island once again.
They are pests that we thought were under control. Now, for the first time in five years, there’s a new infestation of the Asian long-horned beetle.
The tree-killing Asian longhorned beetle has been eradicated from Manhattan and Staten Island, New York state agriculture officials said Tuesday.
