PECAN WEEVIL INTERIOR QUARANTINE

View the full rule here.

Pecan Weevil is considered the most significant insect pest of pecan producers. Previous periodic introductions of pecan weevil into New Mexico have triggered grower specific quarantines and eradication procedures. Pecan weevil was recently confirmed in approximately 200 residential pecan trees in several eastern New Mexico pecan growing counties and several commercial pecan orchards. This recent widespread establishment of pecan weevil in eastern New Mexico’s residential areas has dictated a more comprehensive approach to maintaining New Mexico’s pecan weevil-free status. The Pecan Weevil Interior Quarantine restricts the transportation of pecan weevil from quarantine areas to non-quarantined areas by establishing quarantine areas, restrictions and treatment options on regulated articles, disposition protocol, and fees
