The infestation area of Asian longhorned beetles in Ohio seems to be limited to Bethel, Ohio, a town about 30 miles southeast of Cincinnati. The infested area is now under quarantine, and the news articles I've been seeing indicate an infestation that is around 3 to 5 years old. Of course, we are trying to keep up to date on this!

Surveys to determine the extent of the newly discovered Asian longhorned beetle were begun today, after the destructive beetle was confirmed by USDA officials. Here at Don't Move Firewood, we are really, really sad to hear this. Ohio has already been hit with the emerald ash borer, and for the Asian longhorned beetle to be found there is an enormous blow to that community. For more information, please visit-
