A single adult and some larvae were detected in 2009 near Oakville (Napa County). This is the first known detection of this pest in the United States.

According to Gilligan et al. (2011), surveys conducted in 2010 detected the pest in several Californian counties (Fresno, Mendocino, Merced, Monterey, Napa, San Joaquin, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma).

In 2012, the pest was eradicated from the Solano county (Stocks, 2012), as well as from the counties of Nevada, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Sonoma (NAPPO, 2012).

In 2014, the regulated area was reduced. Portions of Napa and Sonoma counties remain under quarantine.

In August 2016, eradication was officially declared.
