In 2011 Lake County was removed from the European Grapevine Moth quarantine. However, due to our proximity to counties infested with the moth, the Lake County Department of Agriculture continues to work toward preventing this pest from becoming established in our county.
Despite regulations and best practices to keep them out, non-native insects sometimes invade California. The Lake County Department of Agriculture conducts a comprehensive program to detect pests that may have inadvertently entered our county.
The Lake County Department of Agriculture protects our local agricultural industry and environment from invasion by exotic pests by maintaining an extensive Pest Exclusion Program as a first line of defense.
