The Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) has new items in stock that you can order, free of charge, to help raise awareness about the invasive Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB). Two of our most popular handouts, our ALB look-alike sheet and our ALB tree guide, are now available in single-sided laminated form, perfect for display outside or indoors. You can use them to educate campers, tenants, office workers and visitors, park goers, or any passersby about how to identify this invasive pest and the trees it attacks. Community involvement and awareness is a key part of the effort to eradicate ALB. The more people know about the beetle, the better equipped they will be to stop it from spreading.
