The U.S. Department of Agriculture has expanded the Asian citrus psyllid quarantine in California to include Camp Pendleton Marine base after the pest was detected in nearby San Clemente.

The quarantine regulates the movement of host plant material within its boundaries and material leaving the boundaries, according to a National Plant Protection Organization pest alert.

The federal order mirrors that imposed by the California Department of Food and Agriculture.

In California, the quarantine includes all of Imperial, Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange counties; and parts of Santa Barbara, San Diego Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
