Asian Citrus Psyllid
Asian Citrus Psyllid (ACP)
Asian Citrus Psyllids are sucking insects. When they feed on a diseased tree, they spread the disease to other trees it feeds on, much like mosquitoes and fleas spread disease to people and animals.
There is currently no cure for HLB, and it is fatal to citrus trees. The best way to protect your trees is to use a soil drench of Bayer Advanced Fruit, Citrus and Vegetable when you see the psyllids in the fall or spring. Follow directions on the package. More is not better!
If you think your tree has HLB disease, call 1-800-491-1899 to make a report.
You can see a map of where the disease has spread here: Zoomable map of ACP/HLB
To prevent the spread of the disease, no citrus trees, plant materials, or fruit with leaves should be moved around the county. If you want to share your fruit, be sure all leaves are removed and wash it.
