In New Horizons

In New Horizons, upon donation or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say (with abhorrence):

"The citrus long-horned beetle is a putrid pest and a grave threat to trees. Hoo! It's true! Adults possess powerful jaws and use them to chomp through hardwood and plant fibers with ease. The little larvae are no better, boring bullet-like holes into innocent trees with gusto—citrus trees especially. Voracious and vile, indeed! "

The citrus long-horned beetle (Anoplophora chinensis) is a long-horned beetle native to Japan, China, Korea, and southeast Asia where it is considered a serious pest. It had invaded several countries in Europe, and all other countries actively prevent this insect from reaching their borders.[1]

Each female citrus long-horned beetle can make up to 200 eggs after mating, and each egg is separately deposited in tree bark. After the beetle larvae hatches, it chews into the tree, forming a tunnel that is then used as a place for beetle pupation (the process of growing from larvae to adult). From egg-laying to pupation and adult emergence can take twelve to eighteen months.

Infestations by the beetle can kill many different types of hardwood trees as well as citrus trees, pecan, apple, Australian pine, hibiscus, sycamore, willow, pear, mulberry, pigeon pea, Chinaberry, poplar, litchi, kumquat, Japanese red cedar, oak, and Ficus.
