Hungry Pests - USDA Seeks the Public’s Help to Stop Invasive, ‘Hungry Pests’ (Apr 2, 2015)
USDA. Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.
April is Invasive Plant Pest and Disease Awareness Month, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is asking the public to help prevent the spread of invasive pests, which cost our nation an estimated $120 billion each year in damages to our environment, agriculture and native species. USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has identified 15 "Hungry Pests" as some of the most destructive invasive species that people can unknowingly spread in the things they move, pack and bring home from vacations. For more information, see the targeted invasive pest threats.
