Asian citrus psyllid found at packinghouse and juice plant in California

The California Department of Food and Agriculture has urged all citrus industry members to be extra vigilant in their Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) mitigation steps and adherence to regulatory practices. The request is in response to ACP detections in the Central Valley over the last few weeks. ACP is the vector of HLB disease.

Live adults or nymphs were found and collected at two more adjacent properties, including an abandoned parcel with citrus host plants.
