Well, for most of Florida it is, and in South Florida it never really left as far as air potato is concerned.

We wanted to let you know that the Air Potato Patrol program is back and we are here to help answer all of your questions. We are working hard to inform residents of how to accurately identify air potato, how to monitor for beetles and ways to use Integrated Pest Management techniques to reduce the volume of vines on your property. When it comes to releases of air potato beetles, the procedures for beetle distribution have been updated to reflect current needs across the state.
