The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is encouraging Virginia residents to be on the lookout for a destructive beetle.
The Asian longhorned beetle has not yet been spotted in Virginia, but it has the potential to destroy millions of acres of hardwoods, including maple, birch, elm, willow, ash and poplar trees, among others. The beetle is slow to spread on its own during the early stages of an infestation, so early detection and reporting is critical to containing it. People also can help the effort by not moving firewood, which can transport the beetle hidden beneath the bark, to new areas. > Read more.
