Although in the Valencia region in 2017 no notifications of Xylosandrus crassiusculus occurred, the inventory carried out during July-October 2018 confirmed that beetles are present in 12 Carob trees distributed in an area of 60 ha surrounding the 2016 outbreak. They were quit difficult to detect, because no foliar symtoms on canopy are evident, and signs could be confused with the foliar damage of rat gnawings. Only some exudations, strings of compact boring dust (frass) and holes could be observed by near in branches and trunks. No dead trees have been observed so far. Like in the other project regions, traps have been placed to identify, count and preserve specimens for molecular studies needed to understand pathways and develop lures.
