Anoplophora chinensis eradicated from Denmark
In Denmark, a single specimen of Anoplophora chinensis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae – EPPO A2 List) was found in 2011 in a garden in the city of Odense (Funen island) (see EPPO RS 2012/050). In this garden, 3 exit holes were observed on 2 Acer palmatum plants which were subsequently destroyed. After 5 years of particularly intense surveillance around this site without any further findings or signs of possible presence of the pest, the Danish NPPO concluded that the phytosanitary measures have successfully eradicated A. chinensis from Denmark.
The pest status of Anoplophora chinensis in Denmark is officially declared as: Absent, pest eradicated.
