Notice of Treatment for the Asian Citrus Psyllid
March 22, 2017On March 6, 2017, one Asian citrus Psyllid (ACP), Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, a serious exotic pest, was identified from the City of Pleasant Hill, Contra Costa County. This detection indicates that a breeding population exists in the area. The infestation is sufficiently isolated and localized to be susceptible to the California Department of Food and Agriculture's (CDFA) ACP treatment work plan, which includes treatment with foliar and soil-applied insecticides.

The treatment plan for the ACP infestation will be implemented within a 50- to 100-meter radius of each detection site. Visit this link for more information.

If you have questions related to this program, please contact the CDFA toll-free telephone number at (800) 491-1899 for assistance.
