Document Description
The California Department of Food and Agriculture (Department) is preparing a Programmatic EIR to evaluate effects of implementation of eradication strategies and methods for the light brown apple moth (LBAM) (Epiphyas postvittana) in portions of the state where infestations have been identified by trapping programs to date. The LBAM attacks at least 2,042 different species, including many agricultural, horticultural, and forest species of great economic and ecological value. The Department is working closely with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and a Technical Working Group to deploy the most effective strategy and methods to achieve the overall goal of eradication of LBAM from California. Preliminary actions were undertaken as emergency actions in 2007 in the Monterey-Santa Cruz area. Subsequent eradication activities are scheduled for 2008-2009 in the currently infested counties and in any additional counties within the state where subsequent infestations are found.
