Anything to help stop the devastation of mangoes is good.

I agree with this warning, not only mangoes, but any kind of fruit.

I hope every traveler reads this.

A sign that should be obeyed!

Dianne said...

so many pests and diseases are spread about by travellers not following the rules
hope people listen

That is really cool. I approve that sign and hope lahat talaga confiscate at walang "red tape". ^_^ Happy Thursday!

Hmmm... have not seen any signs prohibiting the bringing of fruit WITHIN a country. I have friends who bring pomelo from Davao, for instance. Of mangoes from Iloilo. Is this pest problem only in Busuanga?

Luna Miranda said...

i also wondered about that, Francisca. i also bring all kinds of fruits home when i return from the province. i don't know if there is a pest problem in Busuanga.

all i know is that bringing in mangoes in Guimaras is not allowed.

Sounds like an important warning to me!
