None too excited
« on: June 25, 2019, 12:37:08 AM »
So today I smashed a bug on our lemon tree, and when comparing it to the CDFA's leaflet looked very much like a ACP.

It was found on a graft received from UCR during this year's order, and it was grafted to our femminello.

I have only seen this type of insect on this one graft, nothing else in the yard has shown them.

Anyone else receive scions this year from UCR?

I really doubt it was in your budwood order. Your county is under quarantine because of these insects & the greening they cause.

I sure hope not, but I have searched the yard, and have found them nowhere else, even where you would expect in the citrus grove.

The only tree they are on is the one the CDFA inspected recently.

Next time: caught and identify first, smash later. Your only sample is probably unidentifiable at this moment, so you'll never know if it was the real stuff or a similar native species.
