A look at CDFA’s Medfly quarantine response

CDFA announced a quarantine today for a Mediterranean fruit fly (Medfly) infestation in Panorama City, Los Angeles County. The Medfly detections there have resulted in a series of responses from the agency’s Division of Plant Health and Pest Prevention Services, including a practice known as fruit sampling – fruit taken from properties and checked for Medfly larvae. This short video captures CDFA’s Abraham Lopez and Bestoor Behizadeh performing that work.
