Agriculture Officials Find More Medflies In Mira Mesa

Posted: Updated:
Parts of Mira Mesa are under quarantine Wednesday after state agriculture officials found more Mediterranean fruit flies.

Three adult medflies and 14 larvae were found about a mile away from last week's medfly discovery.

If left unchecked, a medfly infestation in San Diego County could destroy up to $280 million worth of crops.

Officials are asking the public not to remove any fruits or vegetables from the Mira Mesa area.
