You know the one thing I always found a bit odd about the produce inspection stations in California? They're checking everything going "IN" but nothing going out. Seems a bit lopsided. You're worried about folks bringing in new pests to your crops, but you're not concerned with shipping your own to other states? One would think that with as much concern as there is in California, that they'd be making certain nothing was going in OR out....

We have problems with the Zebra mussles here as well. Along with some species of tiny crab.

I'm just trying to protect our Californi nuts and fruits.

The I-15 inspection station outside of Barstow has a lane just for returnees from Vegas.

BTW the state is overhauling the inspection stations. Barstow will be closed and moved to the NV border in conjunction with NV. One station for both. I hear they are doing this with other stations too. I think it is going to be in NV wonder if it will have slots?

almost sounds like you want CA to regulate or enforce other State's entrance requirements

Well, was just wondering with how worried California is about making certain their crops aren't infected by some pest brought into the state, that they'd be equally concerned making certain that they didn't ship any of their pests to other states. It just seemed a bit strange for a state that concerned about pests wouldn't be making sure that they weren't contributing to problems as much as they're concerned about keeping them out.

Not that I travel exceedingly frequently to California, your fuel prices tend to keep me away on their own accord. But, as we were heading out of California last September, I was looking up on the hills near the northern border and noticed that there was only inspection stations on the way in, not the way out. I had been kinda expecting them was suprised that there were none. Course, by that point, the tomatoes and peaches had long since been eaten .
