Pest Detection Trapping and Special Surveys

The Primary objectives of the Pest Detection Trapping Program is to find insect pests before they infest one square mile, plant diseases before they exceed one-half of a square mile and vertebrate pests in the smallest area possible.

Insects targeted for detection by the countywide network of traps include exotic fruit flies (particularly species of Bactrocera, Dacus, Ceratitis, and Anastrepha), Japanese Beetle, Light Brown Apple Moth, Khapra beetle, Gypsy Moth, Asian Citrus Psyllid and European Grapevine Moth.

Special Surveys are conducted to detect pest presence in crops as threats become apparent. Recent surveys that have been conducted in the county include surveys for red imported fire ant and sudden oak death in nurseries, karnal bunt in wheat, and sweet orange scab in citrus plantings.

Negative traps or survey results are used to assure our world-wide trading partners that export shipments from Fresno County are free of damaging agricultural pests.
