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.
Roseville’s Environmental Utilities selected a winner for the “Sustain the Gains” landscape makeover contest. For more than two months, the contest encouraged residents to continue water-efficient behaviors established during the drought and make it a way of life. More than 3,200 Roseville water customers entered and the winner – a 23-year Roseville resident – will have their front yard re-imagined this fall into a low-water-use landscape.
