Pests are living organisms such as rodents, insects, fungi and plants that harm our food, our health or our environment.
The Citrus Longhorn Beetle (Anoplophora chinensis) is a serious invasive pest that originates from China. It is listed in Plant Health legislation throughout the UK. Measures are required to control any findings and prevent further spread of the pest.
There have been recent findings of the pest:
- in a private garden in North-East England; and,
- on a nursery in the Channel Islands on maple trees (Acer palmatum) imported from China via the Netherlands.
Due to the serious nature of this pest, the Welsh Government, in partnership with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the Scottish Government are asking that members of the public look out for this beetle in Wales, England and Scotland.
Anyone finding one of these distinctive beetles should:
- isolate the beetle (best in a sealed glass jar); and,
- contact their local Plant Health and Seeds Inspector (PHSI).
The PHSI should also be notified if there is other evidence of infestation of this beetle.
