Today, an additional area has been quarantined in Tulare County due to the discovery of one Asian citrus psyllid near the community of Farmersville. On June 12, 2014, Spotlight reported that such an expansion was expected, but the exact size of the quarantine area had yet to be determined.
The California Department of Agriculture (CDFA) issued the notice today and provided a map of the new 14 square-mile quarantine area.
In addition to quarantines in portions of Tulare, Fresno, Kern, and San Luis Obispo counties, ACP entire- county quarantines remain in place in Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties.
