Redbay Ambrosia Beetle (Florida Pest Alert)

"The redbay ambrosia beetle, Xyleborus glabratus Eichhoff, was first detected in the U.S. in a survey trap near Port Wentworth, Georgia in 2002 (Rabaglia 2005). By 2003, this Asian beetle and its associated fungus had caused substantial mortality of redbay (Persea borbonia (L.) Spreng.) within a 40-mile radius of the initial trap detection (Douce and Johnson 2005), but the cause of the mortality was unknown at that time." [from Introduction]
