Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM) is a non-issue in California. The CDFA admitted "No Damage" from the moth in the EIR that two superior courts (Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties) forced CDFA to do. The moth has been in California for decades and its nearly identical cousins have been in California for tens of thousands of years, longer than people.
The Bay Area (Northern California) knows all about this fraudulent program, so now CDFA is assisting the false information to spread through the other areas of the state who believe the false information and have no experience with the moth to know that the false info is a joke (a bad joke).
If you still think the moth is dangerous, contact any agriculture commissioner in the state and you will find NO DOCUMENTED DAMAGE FROM LBAM in any county in California.
This entire program was fabricated by CDFA for about $100 Million per year and was planned to continue for 30 years. Most all of the money was to be distributed through privileged insider chemical companies in the form of completely UNNECESSARY pesticide contracts. So pretending that LBAM was a danger was the false excuse to rape the public's funds.
Quarantines and restrictions on farmers are real, but caused by CDFA, not the moth.
