Effective immediately, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is removing five square miles from the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) regulated area in portions of the Townships of Batavia and Stonelick, Clermont County, Ohio. APHIS determined that this area can be removed from quarantine after the program completed the final surveys of host trees within the regulated area. The regulated area in the Township of Monroe and the regulated area in the Township of Tate, along with the entirety of East Fork State Park and portions of the East Fork Wildlife Area, remain in effect.

ALB is a destructive wood-boring pest of maple and other hardwoods. ALB was first discovered in the United States in New York in August 1996. ALB was later detected in areas of Illinois (1998), New Jersey (2002, 2004), Massachusetts (2008, 2010), and Ohio (2011). After the completion of control and regulatory activities and following confirmation surveys, the program declared ALB eradicated from Illinois (2008); Hudson County, New Jersey (2008); Islip, New York (2011); Union and Middlesex Counties, New Jersey (2013); Manhattan and Staten Island, New York (2013); and Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, Massachusetts (2014). Program activities continue in the boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn and Nassau and Suffolk Counties in New York; Worcester County, Massachusetts; and Clermont County, Ohio.

Under IPPC Standards, Anoplophora glabripennis is considered a pest that is present, only in some areas and under eradication in the United States.
