The rosalia longicorn is protected in nearly all of its range nations (4), but it is its diminishing habitat that is perhaps in greater need of protection. It has therefore been generally recommended that more protected habitat be established, particularly forest areas that support old, damaged or dead beech trees. Additionally, landowners should be advised to leave dead wood on the forest floor where possible, or to move it and then leave it in exposed, sunny areas (5). With appropriate methods of forest management these stunning beetles should be able to flourish once more.
