U.S. Department of Agriculture surveys show that importers are following its solid wood-packing rules for imports from China and Hong Kong about 99% of the time. USDA imposed the wood-packing rules in December 1998 after monitoring the destructive beetles that were traced to untreated wood packing in shipments from China and Hong Kong. The agency recently completed inspections of 1,275 containers and found one container that had a live pest in the wood packing. In addition to wood-packing rules, quarantine areas have been set up to keep the beetle from spreading.
