Page Body Text:
The list of invasive pests of concern grows every year. As our trade increases across the globe the likelihood of sharing new species of beetles or bugs goes up. Less than 10% of goods from overseas are able to be inspected by federal agencies and the number one method of transportation of invasive pests is wood. Raw or treated wood can harbor threats to our urban forest as they hitch a ride through their eggs or as adults. To help prevent the spread of potential pests inside the United States, be sure to buy local firewood and burn it all before leaving the area, do not bring art made of wood or other wood packing materials back to the United States from overseas and be on the lookout for pests that you may not recognize.
