The Oriental Fruit Fly has been found in Cupertino, Los Altos Hills and the City of Los Altos. If you live within the quarantine area, DO NOT move fruits or vegetables off of your property.
The Oriental Fruit Fly tends to be bright yellow with a dark T-shape on its abdomen with clear wings. It is larger than a house fly, approximately 1/3" in length. It is a common pest in Asia and enters the U.S. through produce smuggled into the country.
