About this book

Language: Italian

The Asian long-horned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis) usually arrives in Switzerland in packing wood. The citrus long-horned beetle (Anoplophora chinensis) resembles it strongly, and is usually imported with shrubs. Both species attack many hardwood species and can cause the death of healthy trees. The Plant Protection Ordinance has classified them as quarantine pests and any infestation must be reported. This guide allows identification of adult insects and larvae, and shows signs of infestation.

Summary in Italian:
Il tarlo asiatico del fusto (Anoplophora glabripennis) arriva in Svizzera soprattutto tramite il legno da imballaggio. Il tarlo asiatico delle radici (Anoplophora chinensis), una specie molto simile, è generalmente introdotta tramite le piante importate. Queste due specie di cerambici asiatici infestano varie specie di latifoglie viventi e possono causare la morte di alberi sani. Secondo l’ordinanza sulla protezione dei vegetali sono organismi da quarantena per i quali vige l’obbligo di notifica.
