- Early detection of potential threats relies on solid knowledge of exotic species and potential pathways of introduction. Here we provide a review of potential pest bark and ambrosia beetles recorded from Cuba but not present in the USA. Highlighted are genera which contain species known to have caused significant economic damage. This information is highly relevant to entomologists and practitioners involved in forest and tree industries, as well as biosecurity.
