In addition to economic threats from native buprestids, non-native buprestid species threaten environmental sustainability of U.
To address these monitoring and management challenges, several efforts have been made to develop flight intercept traps for insect monitoring that are optimized by exploiting visual cues used by buprestid beetle species and other woodboring pests (e.
Evaluation of several years of trap optimization and efficacy trials, together with regional field trapping for key woodboring pests, revealed gaps in our knowledge regarding regional activity periods for buprestid species that are the primary economic pests of woody ornamental plants (e.
To address these knowledge gaps, institutional, research, and teaching collections as well as museums and personal collections in both North Carolina and Tennessee were accessed to assemble available label data to determine species location and distribution, as well as seasonal flight activities of adult buprestid beetles.

Identities and label records were examined for 15,217 specimens, representing 135 different buprestid beetle species taken between 1901 and 2013 (North Carolina) and between 1934 and 2013 (Tennessee) and used to compile seasonal activity and distributional records for each species.
Distributional records and seasonal flight activity charts for the buprestid fauna in North Carolina and Tennessee are expected to help document potential environmental and economic impacts presented by non-native buprestid beetle species to these states.
