The USDA kicked off Invasive Plant Pest and Disease Awareness Month with a campaign to highlight the dangers they may cause, including harm to the economy, the environment and/or human health. The California Department of Food and Agriculture encourages people to visit www.hungrypests.com, where they’ll see an interactive map and learn about invasive pests and diseases, cataloged by state.

WG’s Ken Gilliland, director of international trade and transportation, was featured Monday in an article by USA Today.
