Don’t bug us again…

cartoon 8.15.14 rsSince 2008, when Asian Longhorned Beetles (ALB) were first identified in Worcester and then in Shrewsbury, the pests have decimated thousands of trees.

To help prevent further infestations federal and local officials have asked for the public's help. Adult beetles are most active during the summer and early fall. Throughout the summer, they can be seen on tree trunks and branches, walls, outdoor furniture, cars, and sidewalks. Signs of ALB infestation may include dime-sized exit holes, egg sites in the bark, sawdust-like matter and dead or fallen branches.

Once a tree is infested it must be removed in the proper manner to help the disease from spreading to other trees.? For more information visit www.shrewsbury-ma.gov and click on “August is Tree Check Month.”
