Screening Aids to Exotic Wood Borer/Bark Beetles

USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service’s Identification Technology Program (ITP) is pleased to announce the release of identification aids for the screening of exotic wood borer/bark beetles by the Cooperative Agriculture Pest Survey community (CAPS). The 11 screening aids, developed in cooperation with Colorado State University, were created using the template and format from ITP’s first suite of screening aids (exotic Lepidoptera) delivered to CAPS in 2014.

The 11 screening aids, available in both high resolution and low resolution formats, are accessible via the CAPS website https://caps.ceris.purdue.edu/screening-aids.
