Federal agents near New Orleans ordered a cargo ship to leave the U.S. after an inspection found wood infested with a type of Asian beetle that has been destroying trees in the U.S. for about 25 years.
They discovered the beetle in wood onboard the Pan Jasmine on July 17, The New Orleans Advocate/The Times-Picayune reported. The discovery came just after the 590-foot-long vessel anchored in the Mississippi River about a mile downriver from New Orleans.
