Anoplophora glabripennis - Asian Long-horned Beetle
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has established a regulated area in parts of Mississauga and Toronto to prevent the spread of the Asian Long-Horned Beetle (also known as starry sky beetle). The Asian Long-horned Beetle Infested Place Order prohibits the movement of any tree materials out of or through the regulated area unless authorized by a Movement Certificate issued by the CFIA.
If you believe that you may have found this beetle, please contact a local CFIA office or call 1-800-442-2342. In Mississauga and Toronto, please call 647-790-1012. There are several native Canadian insects (White spotted Sawyer beetle, Monochamus scutellatus, Western Conifer Seed Bug, Leptoglossus occidentalis, Banded Alder Beetle, Rosalia funebris) which look similar to the Asian Longhorned Beetle.
