A 52-square-mile quarantine zone is expected to be quarantined this week as state, county and federal officials try to eradicate oriental fruit flies threatening tomato, pepper, grade and cucumber crops. The California Department of Food and Agriculture will impose the quarantine in cooperation with USDA, a spokesman for the state agency said. Quarantine boundaries will expand if the infestation broadens. The proposed quarantine follows the trapping of nine oriental fruit flies between July 27 and Aug. 1.
