Caption: The Cylindrical Hardwood Borer (Neoclytus acuminatus) is an elongate, slender, cylindrical beetle, 6 to 8mm long, reddish-brown with yellow crossbands on the wing covers. The thorax bears four to six small transverse ridges on the median longitudinal ridge. Larvae feed in the unseasoned wood of hardwood trees, honeycombing the sapwood and packing mines tightly with granular frass. Primary host trees include ash, oak, hickory, persimmon and hackberry. Atlanta, GA.
