After the recent HLB detection in Los Angeles County, many people have been contacting our office. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you about the Ventura County ACP-HLB Task Force.
The Task Force, founded January 2010, “is dedicated to the early detection and swift eradication of this invasive pest, and to preventing the disease it transmits from devastating Ventura County citrus.”
To allow for quick exchange of information and open communication, the Task Force is on Facebook. The information and resources available on their page are extensive.
Recently added resources include a free smart phone app from the USDA designed to help report suspected citrus diseases, including HLB.
