Asian citrus psyllids in Fallbrook trapped, testing for HLB
« on: January 01, 2021, 11:08:15 AM »
The news articles on trapping 4 Asian citrus psyllids in Fallbrook and possible HLB in Fallbrook started circulating more in the past 24 hours. The pests and traps have been everywhere for years now, so hopefully the tests are negative for HLB.

Thanks for the articles. Plant tissues from citrus trees from the find site and neighboring properties tested negative for HLB this week. More samples were taken within 250 meters of the property, but those test results wont be ready for another week, at least. I hope those test negative as well...
