Asian Citrus Psyllid Treatment Program in Whittier

The California Department of Food and Agriculture will be conducting treatments in the Whittier area for Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) suppression, due to the detection of citrus trees infected with Huanglonging (HLB) disease.  They will begin treatments on Monday, March 18, 2019 and the treatment will last approximately  2-3 weeks.  See the following map of the area they will be working in. All citrus trees will be treated within the area boundaries using Tempo SC Ultra and Merit 2F.
