CBP agriculture specialists along with the USDA confirmed the first arrival of two insects at the Wilmington, Delaware port.
In early June, CBP agriculture specialists found an long-horned beetle, an invasive species int he US as they bore into wood and can cause extensive damage to trees. The following week, CBP agriculture specialists discovered an adult weevil in pineapples from Guatemala – the weevils post a threat to our domestic grains and crops.
In the event pests are found, the common CBP protocol is to re-export and fumigate the shipment.
