They are found in southern China but have come to the U.S. in shipping boxes that used wood chips for packing.
They live in maple, oak and ash (hardwood) forests.
They are about 1 – 2 inches long and are shiny black beetles with white spots. They have long antennae that have black and white stripes.
They dig into the wood (wood-borers) of (and hurt) hardwood trees.
They eat maple, poplar, birch, willow, elm, ash and horse chestnut.
Females chew small circular holes to lay eggs into. When they hatch, the young (larvae) feed on the bark making small tunnels inside the tree.
