CBP Ensures you don't Bug your Sweetheart on Valentines Day

CBP Agricultural Specialists have been busy inspecting hundreds of millions of imported flowers from South America to be sold to U.S. consumers for Valentines Day.  At ports of entry, CBP ensures that plant pests and diseases are detected and prevented from being introduced to the U.S. flower and agricultural industries.
Last Valentines Day season, CBP Agricultural Specialists processed more than 802.5 million cut flower stems and prevented 3,400 pests attempting to enter the U.S. on flower imports. For fiscal year 2011, CBP logged almost 200,000 insect and disease interceptions.
