Psyllid Quarantine Extends into Alameda County

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) issued a press release yesterday announcing the expansion of Asian citrus psyllid quarantine areas. Excerpts from the release are as follows:  

“Following the detection of an Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) within the City of San Jose, the existing quarantine has been expanded to include an additional portion of northwest Santa Clara County and a portion of southern Alameda County along its border with Santa Clara County.  The quarantine expansion in Santa Clara County adds 4 square miles to the northwest of the current quarantine and the new quarantine expansion into Alameda County measures approximately 9 square miles in the Fremont area.”
