im on long island and found this grapevine beetle in my back yard. I actually did not know what it was at first until i found this website and compared pictures haha. My question is, is this a rare bug to find in this area?

Grapevine Beetle

Hi Dookey,
The Grapevine Beetle is not rare, and though we cannot provide any concrete data, we can say that the identification requests we received this year are up from previous years.  Since there are vineyards in New York, it stands to reason that Grapevine Beetles might be more common there than in other places.
