ALB Watch - Fera's Asian longhorn beetle alert tool

Fera has developed an online application called ALB Watch to enable members of the public to quickly and easily alert our Plant Health Inspectors of any potential sightings of the Asian longhorn beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis).

ALB Watch allows you to upload data including images of any suspected sighting of the Asian longhorn beetle, so that a member of our inspectorate team can take a look and contact you to confirm if your find is an Asian longhorn beetle. If it turns out to be ALB, they will be able to discuss what you may need to do next.

The vigilance of the public is paramount in assisting us to ensure the health of our country's plants, trees and wildlife against non-native species. If you see what you suspect to be an Asian longhorn beetle, please send as much information via ALB Watch as possible.
