U.S. customs and border protection agriculture specialists at the Progreso-Donna port of entry recently intercepted a rare pest.

During an examination of the trailer floor, which was importing cucumbers, a CBP agriculture specialist discovered a live insect.

The pest was submitted for identification and determined it was a Tominotus Hogenhoferi, a quarantine significant pest which had only been intercepted twice before in the U.S., in Florida.

CBP refused entry for the shipment and it was returned to Mexico.
