Multiple first in port pests discovered in Philadelphia

Three different pests capable of causing damage were discovered at the Port of Philadelphia, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a statement.

   U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations agriculture specialists at the Port of Philadelphia recently discovered three first in port pests while inspecting produce from Central and South America.
   A moth, belonging to the family Geometridae, was discovered June 23 during an inspection of pineapples from Costa Rica, according to a statement from CBP. Moths and butterflies in this family can cause significant damage to leafy crops, perennials, trees and shrubs. A weevil belonging to the genus Rhyssomatus was also discovered June 23 during an inspection of pineapples from Colombia. Weevils belonging to this genus can cause damage to grape vines, sweet potatoes and other plants. Both pests were discovered at the Pier 82 Warehouse and were officially identified June 25.
   In addition, a beetle belonging to the family Chrysomelidae, known to cause damage to plants, was discovered at the Packer Avenue Marine Terminal July 10 during an inspection of avocados from Peru. The beetle was officially identified July 14.
   After the pests were identified, each shipment was fumigated, determined free of additional pests, and released.
