Action

Press for early EU consideration of listing. Awareness raising required.

General Comments

American wood boring beetle, single European incursion into a German Island in the Baltic, limited likelihood of introduction into the UK due to small volume of trade and import inspections. Possible EU listing will limit risk further.
