Description: Longhorned beetles are a diverse and important group of insects in forest ecosystems; several species attack weakened or stressed trees, relatively few attack healthy trees, and most species use only dead and decomposing wood. We surveyed longhorned beetles and metallic wood-boring beetles using four different types of traps at 36 Hardwood Ecosystem Experiment (Indiana) locations that spanned all silvicultural treatments from 2006 through 2008. During two of these pre-treatment years we conducted surveys on sites destined to be within treatment areas, and in one year we sampled within the landscape outside the treated areas. We found no differences in the species richness or diversity between sites destined for future treatments. We identified a difference between future treatment and non-treatment sites that appeared to be caused by sampling them in different years. We discuss the importance of taking generation times of the species into account in future surveys.
