Never doubt the importance of pest management. Most destructive insect has once again been caught "trying" to sneak pass our borders!
Customs officials at Washington metropolitan region airports discovered the world's "most destructive pest," the Khapra beetle, in passenger luggage on two recent occasions, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Thursday.
The Department of Homeland Security's agriculture specialists at Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport found two live adult Khapra beetles, one dead immature larva, and several cast skins in two pounds of insect-infested cow peas during a standard inspection Feb. 23, which are prohibited from being brought into the country. www.washingtonexaminer.com/most-destructive-pest-found-in-passengers-luggage-at-dc-area-airports-customs-officials/article/2651126
