California’s Secretary of Agriculture, A.G. Kawamura, has announced that aerial spraying of the light brown apple moth pheromone Checkmate OLR-F will begin in Monterey County at 8 p.m. Sunday, weather permitting.

The operation that night will cover just part of the eradication area, which includes Marina, Seaside, Del Rey Oaks, Monterey and Pacific Grove. To complete the initial application throughout the rest of the area, additional plane flights are scheduled to occur Monday and Tuesday.
