This is information that’s going to need to be repeated over and over again. Serious stuff. The following information is from the U.C. San Diego Cooperative Extension. Pass it on!!!
Many of you may have seen the recent article in the North County Times addressing the Asian Citrus Psyllid/Haugnlongbing issue.
With the publication of this article I’m sure we will receive an increase in calls and questions through our hotline and various community Ask a Master Gardener events about this pest/disease. With that in mind, it’s probably a good time to brush up on this issue. The following links will take you to the latest info available from UC, State and Federal agencies.
