State Quarantines

Quarantines are the state’s way of creating virtual boundaries that might limit the movement of a pest or pest host throughout the state.  They are an important tool utilized by Plant Protection in protecting uninfested areas of our state from localized pests, as well as protecting us from pests not known to occur in South Carolina.  Below is an outline of the existing plant pest-related quarantines in South Carolina enforced by Plant Protection.  For a more detailed description of these quarantines and how they are legally binding, please visit these related state government links:
