ASIAN CITRUS PSYLLIDS IN ARIZONA TESTS NEGATIVE FOR CITRUS GREENING DISEASE

Nogales, AZ & Yuma, AZ


Two Asian Citrus Psyllids were tested by the USDA for Huanglongbing (HLB) disease, also called citrus greening disease. The Psyllids were found in Nogales, AZ and Yuma, AZ. The Arizona Department of Agriculture doesn’t believe there is an Asian Citrus Psyllid population currently established in the Nogales area.

Citrus greening disease is a concern for citrus tree owners and the entire citrus industry. The fruit from a tree infected with citrus greening disease is malformed and has a very sour taste. The disease, which is transmitted by the Asian Citrus Psyllid, will eventually kill every citrus tree it infects. Almost all discoveries of Asian Citrus Psyllid have been on residential citrus trees. The Arizona Department of Agriculture recommends that owners of citrus tree should not transport citrus trees or citrus fruit.

Asian Citrus Psyllid has also been found in Florida and California. Infection from citrus greening disease has resulted in thousands of tree removals in Florida. In California quarantines have been implemented in Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, and San Diego Counties.
