An Asian Citrus Psyllid

In a headline that has become all too familiar, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) issued a press release that places an additional part of Tulare County in quarantine following the detection of one Asian citrus psyllid (ACP).  The detection was discovered near the unincorporated area west of the City of Porterville.

CDFA’s announcement was made on February 7, and called for a quarantine zone measuring 13 square miles.  Besides this and including the existing zones in Tulare, ACP quarantine zones are now in place in Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Ventura Counties.
