Description
Fencing in fruit flies--State transportation workers erect a quarantine sign on the Long Beach Freeway just south of Imperial Highway to warn against removing citrus, avocados, peaches and other fruit that can host Mexican fruit flies. The signs are part of a campaign against the ruinous pest. Spraying is to resume Monday in the southeast metropolitan area.
