ALB Asian Longhorned Beetle Update

ALB update from 5/26/2023 announcement:

Adult Emergence Begins

The weather is warm enough that Asian longhorned beetle is starting to emerge. If you take a walk, take a look. See if the trees you’re looking at have any signs of the beetle. From exit holes to weeping sap to sawdust-like wood shavings or look for the beetle itself, then report the signs by calling 1-866-702-9938 or online here.
