Asian Ambrosia Beetle
Infestations of the Asian ambrosia beetle can be identified by the toothpick-like projections from the trunk or the main scaffold limbs. Infested trees should be removed and surrounding trees should be treated with lindane or chlorpyrifos (Lorsban ®). This is an early season pest with most infestations observed in April or May. Infested trees should be burned or shredded to prevent the adults from from emerging from the wood.
