2nd Mexican Fruit Fly Quarantine Issued in the Valley
WESLACO – The spread of the Mexican fruit fly is prompting the USDA to establish another quarantine in the Rio Grande Valley.
This one affects citrus growers in Brownsville.
The Mexican fruit fly offspring were detected in our area recently.
The first quarantine was established last month in San Perlita.
Both zones cover over 80 square miles.
