ACP Scouting and Monitoring Workshops in Ventura County – July 13

Coast

The University of California and the Ventura County Farm Bureau are hosting two free workshops on July 13 in Fillmore and Moorpark. Each workshop will provide an overview of proper Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) scouting techniques from University of California research entomologist Dr. Beth Grafton-Cardwell and instructions on how to monitor ACP populations as a way of improving area-wide management strategy in Ventura County.

Attendees will have the opportunity to practice psyllid scouting techniques in blocks of trees known to host ACP and are strongly encouraged to bring a hand lens (a loaner hand lens will be provided, if needed). Each workshop is limited to 25 people and registration is required.
