Asian Long-horned Beetle rears its ugly head in Chicago again

According to a Chicago Tribune story, one specimen of ALB has been found in a Chicago parking lot. This has lead to a storm of questions and a wide search to find the tree this beetle came from. About 5 years ago, the eradication effort was considered successful but monitoring continued for the pest. The full story is available at the Chicago Tribune.
