Monroe Land Trust President Aaron McGoldrick said, “The Asian Longhorn Beetle is in New York. It attacks maples. The Emerald Ash Borer bores into Ash trees. It’s already in Connecticut.”

McGoldrick said the insect was detected in New Haven County last month.

Moss said, “Japanese wasps were brought in by the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station to eat them. Both are invasive.”
