Description: One of the unintended consequences of the globalization of trade has been an increase in the frequency of introductions and the numbers of exotic species intercepted at ports of entry. This is largely due to the increase in volume of trade and a broadening of trading partners, especially with the Pacific Rim and Asia. During the years 1985 through 1998, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) made 6,952 interceptions of exotic pests on wood articles at nearly all of 100 port locations throughout the United States. The intercepted insects originated from at least 95 countries worldwide. A global strategy needs to address the exotic pest problems. Whether dealing with the export or import of transported wood, the pest control principles would be quite similar.
