If you have a swimming pool, the State Department of Environmental Conservation is asking you to participate in a survey about Asian long-horned beetle.
Not interested? Well, the DEC says that early discovery of invasive beetle infestations not only saves trees, but money.
Asian long-horned beetles are wood-boring beetles that are native to Asia. They were accidentally brought to the United States through wood packing materials. They attack a variety of hardwoods, including maples, birches, and willows, and have caused the death of hundreds of thousands of trees across the country, according to the DEC.
