FRESNO, Calif.

Four adult moths were discovered in a trap set near San Diego's Balboa Park on Thursday. Ag officials say the discovery will trigger a state quarantine of one-and-a-half miles around the site sometime this week.

A subsequent federal quarantine could cover the rest of San Diego County. The moth has the potential to damage thousands of plants and hundreds of crops each year.

It's almost harvest season for Brussels sprouts and this year's crop will be shipped all over the country.
