Source: San Francisco Chronicle, 13 July 2005

Two adult Asian longhorned beetles, Anoplophora glabripennis, were discovered outside of a privately owned warehouse in Sacramento, California. This detection marks the first California report of the beetle in the natural environment.  The warehouse had received a shipment of decorative stone from China that was packed in wooden pallets, a known pathway of introduction for this wood-boring beetle.  Common hosts for A. glabripennis are maple, birch, elm, poplar and sycamore trees.,Intensive surveys and trapping efforts are underway in a 9-square-mile radius around the original detection area.
