Honeybee on citrus blossom
<p>Citrus bloom period sets forth California regulations to safeguard honeybees.</p>

Citrus bloom declared in California's Fresno County

State regulations now in effect to protect honeybees

Citrus bloom in parts of Fresno County, Calif. will officially begin at 1 a.m., March 17 for regulatory purposes.

The announcement was made by Fresno County Agricultural Commissioner Les Wright, which sets in motion citrus/bee protection areas under the California Code of Regulations.

The Fresno County declaration includes District 1, which is bordered by Academy Avenue on the west, Crawford Avenue on the east, Belmont Avenue on the south and the county line to the north.

As citrus bloom progresses, more parts of Fresno and neighboring counties will be declared by county Ag commissioners.

It is important that growers, their pest control advisors and beekeepers know what districts are declared in bloom and comply with state law.

For more information, contact your local Ag commissioner’s office.
