The Asian longhorned beetle (ALHB) has been eradicated from the cities of Mississauga and Toronto in the province of Ontario. This was the only known population of ALHB in Canada.  ALHB is a highly destructive wood-boring pest of maples and other hardwood trees including poplar, birch and willow. It was discovered in the cities of Mississauga and Toronto in August 2013. ALHB is native to Asia and can spreads through transport of infested wood products including firewood.
