93-Mile Quarantine Established to Contain "Citrus Greening"

A 93-square-mile quarantine area centered in Hacienda Heights has been established in hopes of containing the state's first case of a bacterial disease that poses a strong risk to citrus trees, the California Department of Food and Agriculture announced today.

In warning of the danger of the disease, agricultural officials said it has cost the state of Florida an estimated $3.6 billion in economic activity since it was discovered in 2005. The HLB disease can be transmitted from plant to plant by the flying insect known as the Asian citrus psyllid. The disease attacks the vascular system of plants, but does not pose a threat to people or animals, officials said.

To date, there is no cure for the disease once a tree is infected.
