According to the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), an invasive insect known as the Asian Citrus Psyllid has been found in Roseville. Asian Citrus Psyllid, or ACP is a serious pest of citrus because it vectors a bacteria that is 100% fatal to citrus trees.
The infestation is sufficiently isolated and localized to be treated with foliar and soil-applied insecticides within a 50-meter radius of each detection site.
Residents will be notified in writing at least 48 hours in advance of any treatement. The treatment map can be found here.
