The European Grapevine Moth quarantine in Sonoma and Napa counties has been removed.

Congratulations and thank you to all of those involved in the eradication of EGVM here in Sonoma County!

The European Grapevine Moth quarantine restrictions were lifted August 18, 2016. 

Trapping will continue in Sonoma County vineyards until October, with the trap density in the former quarantine area being reduced from 100 to 25 traps per square mile.

The Sonoma County Department of Agriculture will continue to work with the US Department of Agriculture and the California Department of Food and Agriculture to survey the county and monitor for European Grapevine Moth in Sonoma County in 2017.
