Longhorn Beetle

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The longhorn beetles (Cerambycidae; also known as long-horned beetles or, more archaically, llongicorns) are a cosmopolitan family of beetles, typically characterized by extremely long antennae, which are often as long as or longer than the beetle’s body. The family is large, with over 20,000 species described, slightly more than half from the Eastern Hemisphere. Several are serious pests, with the larvae boring into wood, where they can cause extensive damage to either living trees or untreated lumber.
