Oriental Fruit Fly quarantine in effect


Portions of Redlands have been placed under quarantine for the oriental fruit fly by the California Department of Food and Agriculture after detecting multiple flies in the city.

In San Bernardino and Riverside counties, detections in and around Redlands have resulted in a quarantine zone covering 112 square miles, bordered on the north by the San Bernardino National Forest, on the south by Highway 60, on the west by Loma Linda, and on the east by Wildwood Canyon.

Mandatory fruit removal is in place in a portion of Redlands. See map.
