Linus the agriculture detector dog says “Don’t Pack a Pest.”

With the final stretch of summer upon us, many Florida residents will be making their way back from vacation. Whether your vacation included a cruise or you flew out of the U.S., please remember our “Don’t Pack a Pest” Traveler’s campaign. For ways to prevent a pest or disease from hitching a ride with you, visit http://www.dontpackapest.com/.

If you’re driving back from another state, heed another of our initiatives. “Don’t Move Firewood!” When you move infested firewood, pests like the Asian Longhorned Beetle travel right along with it. On pest in particular threatens Florida’s avocado industry.

Protect Florida from invasive pests and diseases!
