APHIS Expands the Asian Citrus Psyllid (Diaphorina citri) Quarantined Area in Arizona

Effectively immediately, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), in cooperation with the Arizona Department of Agriculture (ADA) and the Arizona citrus industry, is expanding the area quarantined for the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) to include all counties in Arizona. APHIS is taking this action in response to the ADA Director’s Administrative Order (DAO 16-01) implementing a statewide ACP quarantine.

APHIS is applying safeguarding measures on the interstate movement of regulated articles from Arizona. This action is necessary to prevent the spread of ACP to non-infested areas of the United States. The specific changes to the regulated areas in Arizona are attached and can also be found at:

APHIS will publish a notice of this change in the Federal Register.
