The K-9 Teams enhance our inspection activities related to plant products entering Fresno County via parcel delivery facilities and air freight terminals. Fresno County has two teams. One of the teams is completely funded by the US Farm Bill. Chelsea and her handler were required to complete a 10 week training program at the USDA National Detector Dog Training Center in Florida.

Finds by our two dog teams have included Asian citrus psyllids carrying the huanglongbing bacterium, white footed ants, red wax scales, Japanese beetle, boxwood scale, croton whitefly and many plants carrying bacterial, fungal and viral diseases.
