Dear Nina,
This Starry Night Sky Beetle or Asian Longhorned Borer Beetle,
Anoplophora glabripennis, does not present much of a problem in its native Asia, however, it has been in the news lately because its accidental introduction to North America is resulting in the compromised health of many trees.
