Inspector to visit New Mexico town amid pecan tree quarantine

News

ARTESIA, N.M. (KRQE) – Next week, a state inspector will visit one southern New Mexico town to help control a bug invading pecan trees.

Last month, the state Department of Agriculture placed a 60 day quarantine to stop pecans from moving in and out of Artesia. That’s because the pecan weevil was spotted in residential trees.

The inspector will be at Jamica Park Tuesday and Wednesday to issue certificates to those who hope to take pecans out of the city.
