Summary

On July 10, 2012 the presence of Anoplophora glabripennis was confirmed in one lane tree of Acer platanoides in a residential area of a minor town (Winterswijk), which was reported by a member of the public on July 9, 2012. (see earlier pest report dated August 2012). In total 40 exit holes were detected in this tree and 16 adult live beetles were captured in the immediate vicinity of this tree. It concerned the second outbreak of this harmful organism in the Netherlands. Both outbreaks were not related and were at a distance of more than 150 km (see earlier pest report dated November 2010 of first outbreak). The first outbreak has been eradicated by a clearcut approach. Phytosanitary measures have been taken including delimitation of a clearcut area of relevant host plants (100 m). Following destructive sampling of all relevant host plants within a radius of 100 meter surrounding the finding, no other infected plants or signs of the harmful organism have been detected. In the period July 2012 until October 2012 phytosanitary measures have been completed, including clearcut, destructive sampling, specific surveillance and restrictions on movement of host plant material. In addition all host plants in a range of 1,000 m. have been inspected including use of tree climbers. From 2013-2016 a yearly surveillance has been conducted and restrictions have been in effect for movement of host plant material. The outbreak is eradicated based on destructive sampling and four years of specific surveillance data.
