This pest has put a nearly $10.3 billion dent in Pennsylvania agriculture. Help PDA stop it in its tracks.

As much as $10 billion in lumber and pulp production and $3 million in maple syrup sales are at risk from the exotic Asian longhorned beetle. You can help curtail this problem. If you see an Asian longhorned beetle, submit the insect to a county Penn State Extension office, or call the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s toll-free pest hotline at 866-253-7189 or email .
