SAN LUIS - Some alert customs agents caught a tiny hitchhiker trying to get into the U.S.
A mining bee was found hidden in a shipment of celery, trying to come through the San Luis Port of Entry on April 6.
A national U.S.D.A. indentifier says the mining bee is a new pest.
The entire shipment was quarantined because of the risk of introducing disease and parasites to U.S. bees.
Mining bees typically nest in sandy soil in the ground.
