Oriental Fruit Fly Treatment

On June 25, 2015, the City of Saratoga received notice from the California Department of Food and Agriculture that oriental fruit flies have been found near the City of Saratoga. As a result, the California Department of Food and Agriculture will be conducting chemical treatments to control oriental fruit fly populations. Residents whose property will be treated will be notified in writing at least 48 hours prior to treatment. Treatment will start June 26, 2015 and run a minimum of four weeks. However, the treatment period depends on oriental fruit fly lifecycle durations, which can fluctuate based on temperature.
