Webinar Public Meeting on Treatment Plans in Your Neighborhood

A tiny insect called the Asian citrus psyllid has been found nearby and can spread a deadly citrus tree disease called Huanglongbing as it feeds on citrus tree leaves. Emergency treatment and quarantine action is needed to protect California from the negative economic and environmental impacts the establishment of this pest and disease would cause.

The best way to protect citrus trees from Huanglongbing is to stop the spread of the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP). The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has consulted with scientists and pest experts about methods to prevent the spread of the ACP through treatments. Treatments are ONLY for citrus and are free of cost. All residents of properties scheduled for treatment for ACP will be notified at least 48 hours prior to the application. A webinar meeting for your area has been organized by CDFA to address planned treatment activities.

Citrus Meeting for Valley Center Area Residents with 25 or More Citrus Trees | Dec. 28

December 28, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Valley Center area residents, do you have 25 or more citrus trees on your property? A newly established citrus plant quarantine area may require you to take action to protect your trees. The quarantine is a result of the initial detections of the deadly citrus tree disease called Huanglongbing (HLB) in Valley Center. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HLB – once a citrus tree is infected, it will die.

The Citrus Pest and Disease Prevention Program, administered by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is holding a citrus meeting at the Valley Center Library on Thurs., Dec. 28 at 10 a.m. for residents with 25+ citrus trees on their property in the Valley Center area to learn more about the newly established HLB quarantine and the necessary actions to help protect San Diego County’s citrus.

When: Thursday, Dec. 28, 10 a.m.
Where: Valley Center Library, 29200 Cole Grade Rd., Valley Center, CA 92082
