Glassy-winged Sharpshooter/Pierce's Disease Control Program
Staff from the County of San Luis Obispo Department of Agriculture/Weights and Measures routinely inspect incoming Glassy-winged Sharpshooter (GWSS) host shipments to slow or stop the spread of GWSS. These shipments originate from GWSS infested areas and are destined to San Luis Obispo County.
Nurseries and garden centers, landscapers, plant brokers, and residents purchasing GWSS host plants from nurseries in a GWSS quarantined county must contact one of the County of San Luis Obispo Department of Agriculture/Weights and Measures' three offices to set up an inspection.
