The Asian Long Horned Beetle regulated zone has gotten a lot bigger.
Since the Asian Longhorned Beetle invasion first reared its face in Worcester, the hope was the invasive bugs were limited to the northwest corner of the city, where they were originally spotted. But after residents phoned in reports of infected trees on the southern side of the city Saturday, DCR and the city expanded the quarantined area to include all of Worcester and the Western part of Shrewsbury. City Manager Michael O’Brien announced the expansion during a Monday press conference where he stated that the original 33 square mile quarantine zone has expanded to 62 square miles.
