The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services ( NCDA&CS ) currently administers four insect quarantines. These include two federal quarantines for the gypsy moth and the red imported fire ant, and two state quarantines for the boll weevil and the sweetpotato weevil. Responsibility for these quarantines is shared among additional state and federal agencies; however, the NCDA&CS is the lead agency. Use the following links for additional information:
