The Orange County Agricultural Commissioner performs routine inspections of incoming agricultural products and other materials which may be infested with exotic and harmful insects, plant diseases, weeds, and vertebrates. Exotic Fruit Flies, Gypsy Moths, Burrowing Nematodes, Japanese Beetles, Lethal Yellowing of Palms, and Red Imported Fire Ants are some of the high profile pests being monitored during these inspections.
Additionally, inspections and certifications are performed for local agricultural goods being shipped to other states and foreign destinations. Local shippers and exporters requesting information or inspections for exports need to contact the Agricultural Commissioner's Exclusion program during business hours at (714) 955-0100.
