Statewide Survey &
Detection Efforts Bolstered
With County Trainings


The Pierce’s Disease Control Program (PDCP) provides training annually to county inspectors and others to stop the spread of the glassy-winged sharpshooter (GWSS). So far this year, PDCP staff provided nursery and detection trapping training to over 100 county agricultural inspectors in Northern California.

The training included:

  • An overview of the PDCP, GWSS, and Pierce’s disease
  • Nursery trapping, inspection procedures, and shipping protocols
  • Urban/residential trapping and detection guidelines
  • Information on other serious agricultural pests inspectors may encounter
