The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has a free mobile app for iPhones and iPads. As is the trend these days, an Android version will be available at a later time.
The app, “Report a Pest”, streamlines the reporting to CDFA by having people take photos of a suspected invasive pest and the photos are sent CDFA for evaluation.
For those of you who are not in the Apple family, you can also go to http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/plant/ on the CDFA’s website and click on the "Report a Pest" button on the right hand side (direct link is http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/plant/ReportaPest/).
Lots of other really great information about invasive plants and animals, including insects) is also on the site.
