In 2008, the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) (Anoplophora glabripennis) program announced the eradication ALB in two previously infested areas--Hudson County, NJ, on April 7 and Chicago, IL, on April 17. Hudson County was a small infested site just west of Manhattan, NY. The first and last ALB detection was in October 2002. One hundred thirteen infested and 348 high risk host trees were removed. Four years of survey and 3 years of chemical treatment were completed to ensure ALB was eradicated from the area. ALB was first detected in Chicago in July 1998. At its peak, 35 square miles were quarantined. The program removed 1,551 infested and 220 high risk host trees from the area.
