Bloom season is coming to an end which means counties are declaring 75 percent petal fall. The announcement of petal fall lifts the restrictions of applications to citrus groves with materials toxic to honeybees. This will allow the citrus grower to apply the necessary pesticides to protect their crop from insect pests. The following counties have declared petal fall:

  • Kern County South of 7th Standard Road: Sunday, April 15, 2018
