Pence wants Hoosiers to be aware of beetles

– Gov. Mike Pence wants Indiana residents to be aware of invasive forest insects called Asian longhorned beetles.

The beetles have not been found in Indiana, but they have been found near Cincinnati, Ohio. The beetles kill trees by burrowing into the wood, killing living tissue and weakening the tree’s structure.

State officials say its preference for maple trees poses a high threat to Indiana’s forests and urban tree communities. Maple species make up approximately 34 percent of Indiana’s public trees, and nearly half of Indiana public trees are susceptible to the bettles.

The state Department of Natural Resources is asking Indiana residents to check their maple trees this week and report trees that might be infested. Reported trees will be checked by the DNR staff for verification.
