Mark VanderWerp, Rose B.C.E. Manager of Education and Training, discusses how the supply chain delays affect pest infestations and our food supply in this segment on Fox 2, Detroit.

"We import billions of dollars worth of agricultural goods into this country. And some of those come in with bugs," he said. "Your enemy is time.
