As the United States continues to expand its export markets around the world and increase the variety of agricultural commodities it imports, the U.S. has a greater chance to bringing in unwanted pests.  Moving firewood and other regulated articles are a major way that unwanted pests find travel.  Also know that moving firewood and other regulated articles from quarantined areas is prohibited!

If you suspect you have found a non-native pest, please contact your county cooperative extension agent for verification.
