"Napa quarantine for LBAM ends"

"The light brown apple moth quarantine in Napa County has been lifted.
That allows grape growers and other affected farmers to sell and ship
crops freely.

The quarantine was imposed last May when 2 mothd were discovered in
Napa County and was lifted after no additional moths were found. State
officials say quarantines may soon be lifted in other regions where only
a few insects were found.

The light brown apple moth threatens a large number of crops and
native plants."
