APHIS Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ), an operational program, safeguards agriculture and natural resources from the risks associated with the entry, establishment, or spread of animal and plant pests and noxious weeds. Because of the extensive damage it causes, the Japanese beetle (JB) Popillia japonica Newman, is a significant pest. The primary objective of the JB program is to protect the agriculture of the western United States by preventing the artificial spread of the JB from the eastern United States. Artificial spread is the movement of an organism to a new area by other than natural means; in this case, artificial spread refers specifically to the movement of JBs on aircraft. The Japanese Beetle Program Manual for Airports will help APHIS-PPQ personnel and cooperators prevent artificial spread of the JB.
