What's my role?
More than 60 percent of California homeowners have citrus trees in their yards. Because HLB can spread from infected citrus trees in residential areas to nearby commercial growers, homeowners play a critical role in the fight against the disease.
When Asian citrus psyllids attack your citrus tree, these tiny insects can quickly spread across an entire community.
The psyllids reproduce quickly and migrate to other trees, whether in your neighbor’s yard or in the commercial citrus grove a few blocks away, putting both at risk for contracting HLB. By knowing the signs and acting early, you can help ensure your favorite fruits don’t disappear.
