Report A Pest - A Free Mobile Application for Californians
Have You Seen a New or Unusual Plant or Pest in Your Area?
If so, you can play an important role in protecting California agriculture and your environment by reporting the sighting of a plant or pest that you suspect may be a new invasive species in your area.
CDFA has released this free, easy to use mobile application for Californians.
The app provides the ability to photograph and report suspected harmful pests to state and local agricultural officials. Using camera and GPS technology, the app provides CDFA invasive species specialists with valuable sighting information.
The mobile app is connected to our Report a Pest database where an invasive species specialist can identify and return a contact back to the citizen. Owners of iPads and iPhones can choose to use GPS coordinates to show the location of the find, allowing the department to respond quickly to invasive pest emergencies.
Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.1 or later.
