Open House Meeting on the Treatment Plans Against the Asian Citrus Psyllid Detected in Your Neighborhood
5:30 P.M. - 7:00 P.M.
515 Eubanks Street
An infestation ofthe Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) has been detected in your neighborhood. The ACP is a tiny, flying insect that transmits a bacterial disease called huanglongbing (HLB) to citrus trees. Trees infected with the HLB disease produce bitter and misshapen fruit. The HLB disease is fatal to citrus trees. The ACP is a threat to California's backyard and commercially grown citrus. To prevent the spread of this pest, the California Department of Food and Agriculture has implemented a voluntary treatment program whereby treatments are coordinated with local citrus growers. The coordinated treatment will suppress the ACP in a larger area and eliminate the need for individual pesticide applications throughout the year.
