On July 11 , CDFA announced recent findings of six Asian citrus psyllids on three glassy-wingedsharpshooter (GWSS) traps in the Porterville area. While we were all happy to hear the restrictions which were a result of the November 2012 ACP finds were lifted as of June 17th in Tulare County, these new finds mean new regulations in nearby areas.

Orchards near the trap finds will need to be treated and quarantine areas are being defined that will restrict movement of bulk citrus and nursery plants. This meeting is your opportunity to learn how these new finds and the regulations associated with them will affect you and your neighbors; how your CPDPP assessment dollars are being spent; and the best strategies for treating for Asian citrus psyllid in your groves.
