APHIS will publish a final notice in the Federal Register on Monday, February 10, 2014, affirming its decision to maintain the light brown apple moth (LBAM) as a quarantine pest. This decision comes in response to two petitioners who requested that we reclassify LBAM as a non-quarantine pest. APHIS and the California Department of Food and Agriculture will continue their ongoing, joint efforts to control LBAM in California.


You can access the Federal Register notice “Response to Petitions for the Reclassification of Light Brown Apple Moth as a Non-Quarantine Pest” (Docket No. APHIS-2009-0101) at The notice explains our decision and includes our responses to the public comments received on a previous Federal Register notice on this issue.  It will be available on on Monday.
