Actions Indicated

  • show / hide


Statutory action against findings. Pest is suitable for further assessment at a European level. Targeted monitoring will be carried out.

General Comments

Longhorn beetle from Asia, now present in Eastern EU, which could potentially be a threat to ornamental and fruit trees if introduced to UK. Wooden packaging is likely to be the main pathway of entry. Initial PRA has not revealed a significant threat, but further evidence and information will be gathered to consider a further assessment, most likely through EPPO. Targeted monitoring will be carried out.
