Ventura County

To report firewood or trees suspected of being infested with GSOB:
Call the GSOB Hotline (951) 659-8328 or use this online form.

To request GSOB information materials and handouts:
Contact Annika Nabors: ajnabors@ucanr.edu.

While Ventura County has not experienced a confirmed infestation of GSOB, its proximity to an infested county (Los Angeles) and its prevalence of host trees means that residents should be on the lookout. For questions, please contact:
