Don’t Bring Home Hungry Pests

I hope it isn’t just us, but we find this commercial a bit creepy.

Regardless though it’s a practice we all could benefit from. Invasive pests & animals that are introduce to a new environment where they have no natural predators. If a pest or animal does not have a natural predator then they have the possibility of multiplying exponentially and destroying a natural habitat.

Here are ways to help prevent moving Hungry Pests

  • Don’t move untreated firewood from one place to another, as invasive pests could be hidden inside.
  • Wash outdoor gear, and tires and wheel wells free of dirt and insects/eggs before going on and leaving from fishing, hunting or camping trips.
  • Clean lawn furniture and other outdoor items before moving them to another location.
  • Don’t bring fresh fruits, vegetables or plants out of quarantined areas unless agricultural inspectors have cleared them beforehand.
  • If crossing the border, declare all produce, plants and plant-based items to customs officials.
