Asian Citrus Psyllid restriction to be lifted in Tulare County

Officials in the South Valley are set to lift a restriction against a dangerous pest.

Those restrictions were put in place seven months ago after two Asian Citrus Psyllids were discovered in two separate groves in Tulare County.

The restrictions will be lifted next week because no other psyllid has been discovered since. The restrictions included limiting the movement of fruit, spraying for the bug, and the placement of hundreds of traps.
