I think that at best we need to be very careful in bringing plants to the meetings for the raffle and at worst we may have to stop the raffle and even tastings until there are better controls.

That's kind of how it sounded to me too, but I didn't want to say it out loud. It has such a wide host range....

I just looked at the California Department of Food & Agriculture release
and it specifically states: "CDFA, the USDA and agricultural commissioners are requesting that residents of the infestation zone please not remove any plants or plant parts from their property, including fruit and flowers."

Here's an article from today's SJ Mercury News - the quarantine area is spreading and yes, it does say not to remove plant material from your home. See html="http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_5737690?nclick_check=1"
