~ Here are tips to prevent the spread of the deadly citrus tree disease, Huanglongbing (HLB), which is spread by a tiny insect called the Asian citrus psyllid that feeds on citrus leaves. There is no cure.

Before moving fruit from your property ...

  • Remove all leaves, stems and branches. 
  • Wash fruit thoroughly. 
  • Fully open bags carrying your citrus, dump and shake them out, and remove any stems, leaves, or other debris. 
  • Inspect clothes, personal items, and vehicles for plant materials and brush them off.

To report any suspected findings of the disease, call the California Department of Food and Agriculture at (800) 491-1899.
