Dodder or the dreaded Witch's Hair

Edinboro, PA(Zone 5b)

Hi. My sister needs your help. She lives in California. There is a serious infestation of Dodder [Cusutca] all over her pepper trees. It's a parasitical native vine, orange in color, that usually subsides during the hot season. It's got a headstart this year and may kill the trees. Any ideas for control? Organic methods preferred, but she might get desperate... Thanks! Brian from California [though now in PA]
