Oriental Fruit Fly quarantine in Los Angeles County

A portion of Los Angeles County has been placed under quarantine for the Oriental fruit fly following the detection of 14 flies in the North Hills area of the San Fernando Valley. The quarantine zone measures 89 square miles. It is bordered on the north by the Angeles National Forest, on the south by the Ventura Freeway, on the west by Porter Ranch and on the east by Hansen Dam Park. See the quarantine map.

California crops at risk include citrus, pome, stone fruits, dates, avocados and many vegetables, particularly tomatoes and peppers. Growers, nurseries or other industry operations located in or near the quarantine zone are encouraged to follow regulatory practices set in place by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA).
