California Department of Food & Agriculture Official Notice
Amendment to the Notice of Treatment for the Asian Citrus Psyllid
Between December 6, 2018 and January 11, 2019, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) confirmed the presence of Asian Citrus Psyllids (ACP), Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, a harmful exotic pest, in the City of Soledad in Monterey County. This detection indicates that a breeding population exists in the area. The devastating citrus disease Huanglongbing (HLB) is spread by the feeding action of ACP. The ACP infestation is sufficiently isolated and localized to be amenable to the CDFA's ACP treatment work plan.
A Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) has been certified which analyzes the ACP treatment program in accordance with Public Resources Code, Sections 21000 et seq. The PEIR is available at www.cdfa.ca.gov/plant/peir/. The treatment activities described in the document are consistent with the PEIR.
In accordance with integrated pest management principles. CDFA as evaluated possible treatment methods and determined there are no physical, cultural, or biological control methods available to eliminate the ACP from this area. Notice of Treatment is valid until January 11, 2020, which is the amount of time necessary to determine that the treatment was successful.
