To protect consumers and producers of Agricultural products in San Luis Obispo County by preventing the introductions or establishment of exotic pests and diseases.
The Pest Prevention program enforces federal and state laws and regulations to prevent the introduction and spread of pests in San Luis Obispo County. We operate the pest exclusion, pest detection, and pest eradication programs to protect agriculture, cities, suburbs and native habitat from pests foreign to California. We also regulate county beekeepers to provide a safe distance between apiaries and the public.
