Los Angeles County Placed Under Quarantine For Asian Citrus Psyllid

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has placed all of Los Angeles County under a quarantine regulating the movement of citrus and closely-related plants.



The quarantine follows the detection of several dozen Asian citrus psyllids in the Echo Park area. CDFA is working with the USDA and county officials and growers to implement the quarantine in an effort to prevent the spread of the Asian citrus psyllid in California.
