Pest Management

The Pest management program serves to control pests already established in the county, including harmful insects, weeds, and rodents.

The Vertebrate Pest Management Program provides information and materials to growers and homeowners for the control of certain depredating vertebrate pests. Currently our office offers the following products for sale:

Diphacinone Grain bait is no longer sold by our department.

Gas Cartridges: for the control of ground squirrels.  Please call our offices for up to date Cartridge costs.

The Vertebrate Pest Management Program provides information and materials to growers and homeowners for the control of certain depredating vertebrate pests.

The Biological Control Program involves the utilization of natural parasites and predators to reduce populations of insects and weeds.

The Glassy-Winged Sharpshooter Program utilizes traps and surveys to detect and control the pest. The sharpshooter is particularly threatening to Madera County agriculture because it is a vector for Pierce's Disease, a potentially catastrophic disease of vineyards. This office devotes time to trapping, as well as inspecting incoming shipments of plant material which may be carrying the sharpshooter or its egg masses.
