We are currently monitoring these exotic pests as part of the Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey (CAPS). If you think you've discovered a pest not native to Rhode Island, and particularly if you suspect the pest to be the Asian Longhorned Beetle or the Emerald Ash Borer, please Email us to let us know.
NOTE: If you believe you have found an Asian Longhorn Beetle or Emerald Ash Borer, please make every safe and reasonable effort to capture or closely photograph it to aid in identification, as there are several native species with a similar appearance.
Please be sure to include all of the following information:
- Your full name
- Your phone number
- The specific location of pest sighting
- A physical description of the pest
- A list indicating the types of trees/crops being damaged
