As of October 2019, more than 1,650 HLB-infected trees have been detected and removed from these areas. The Citrus Pest & Disease Prevention Program (CPDPP) is continuing to ask all California residents – 60% of whom own citrus trees – to protect California citrus and their backyard citrus trees by searching for signs of HLB and the pest that can carry and spread HLB, called the Asian citrus psyllid. Watch this new video from @CaliforniaCitrusThreat for HLB information and fall gardening tips. Learn what you can do to avoid the spread of HLB: CaliforniaCitrusThreat.org.
