Asian long-horned beetle discovered in Mississauga, ON

The troublesome Asian long-horned beetle has re-emerged, this time from trees in Mississauga, leaving its perfectly round exit holes and fears of another invasion.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said inspectors confirmed the pest’s presence northeast of Pearson airport in late September, after a person found one of the distinctive beetles on his car in August.
