In the mid-1990s it was estimated that more than 400 exotic (non-native) forest insects had already become established in the United States (HAACK and BYLER, 1993; MATTSON et al., 1994; NIEMELA and MATTSON, 1996). This number has continued to grow with new exotics discovered annually in the United States (HAACK, 2002; HAACK and POLAND, 2001; HAACK et al., 2002). One recent arrival is the Asian cerambycid beetle Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky). In North America, this beetle is commonly referred to as the "Asian longhorned beetle." Anoplophora glabripennis was first found in New York City in 1996 (CAVEY et al., 1998; HAACK et al., 1996, 1997; HAACK et al., 2000), then in Chicago, Illinois, in 1998 (POLAND et al., 1998), and most recently in Jersey City, New Jersey, in October 2002. Breeding populations of A. glabripennis were also recently discovered in Austria in 2001 (TOMICZEK et al., 2002).
