Orem, UT – The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food has declared an insect infestation emergency covering much of the west side of Orem. It's about to begin a spraying program, hoping to eradicate Japanese beetles, which were found in the area last year. The state is also imposing a three-year ban on home gardens in the area.
