Treatment plan announced for light brown apple moth

Nipomo residents who have questions or concerns about the light brown apple moth will have a chance to ask questions at an upcoming open house.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture will hold the informal meeting to let residents know about upcoming plans to treat the invasive pest.

Officials say they plan to use twist ties containing a moth pheromone that distracts or confuses male moths so they are unable to mate with female moths.

Residents who live near the areas where the ties will be placed will be notified by the CDFA.

The open house will be held on February 8, from 6-7 p.m. at the Nipomo Community Service District Facility at 148 Wilson Street in Nipomo.
