PHC Pest Review
Threat: Longhorn beetles
Key Priorities and Recommendations
- Maintain awareness and vigilance – especially amongst timber and packaging industries - and members of the public (esp. with respect to those of horticultural concern).
- Keep up to date with developments in outbreak management in Europe and North America.
- Monitor trade with the Far East likely to increase volumes of untreated wood arriving in Scotland.
- Engagement with Coleopterist community to broaden monitoring and encourage reporting.
