Treatment Dates:

  • Pauma Valley and San Pasqual Valley - September 11-25
  • Borrego - (Systemic) September 4-18, (Foliar) October 2-16 

*Organic operations must do 2 applications within 10 days of each other with at least one application within the treatment window.



* The board is comprised of five board seats. Currently one seat is open. Please contact Enrico Ferro if you would like to be on the board of the Pest Control District.

Treatment with an effective ACP product is MANDATORY within pest control district boundaries. Areas outside of district boundaries are strongly encouraged to participate in the coordinated treatments to aid in the effectiveness of the treatment strategy. Studies indicate a treatment rate of 90% or more is necessary for area wide effectiveness. In addition, pest control district zones that reach 90% will also receive residential citrus treatments conducted by CDFA.

The district is preparing to enforce treatments in the near future in order to ensure an area wide rate greater than 90% of planted commercial citrus acreage.
