New Pest Response Guidelines.ASIAN LONGHORNED BEETLE, Revised January 2007

"1. Soil or trunk injection of insecticides:
Imidacloprid, a chemical with systemic properties and low mammalian toxicity, has been
found to be effective against adult ALB as it feeds on small twigs, the female when
depositing eggs, and young larvae"

Why trunk injection should  used, 1) control of  the insect before they fly outside the Quarantine area
2) safer than spraying,  non target species such as birds,  ...people are not harmed.
