‘Beetle-Busters’

Shrewsbury – Despite attempts to control infestation in the area along the Worcester-Shrewsbury line over the past several years, the Asian Longhorned Beetle has managed to move into new areas in Shrewsbury, including town property located at the edge of St. John’s High School’s athletic fields.

The beetle infestation has already resulted in significant local tree removal and quarantine to prevent exporting infested material.

Trees that have been newly identified as being infected will also be cut down, most likely by the end of May.
