Huanglongbing (HLB), a disease circulated by the Asian Citrus Psyllid insect, has been spreading in Los Angeles and Orange counties where more than 700 infected trees have been found and removed. The California Department of Food and Agriculture through the Citrus Pest & Disease Prevention Committee (CPDPC) is asking California residents - 60% of whom own citrus trees - to protect California citrus and their backyard citrus trees by searching for signs of the pest and disease.

CPDPC has produced a 30-second Public Service Announcement that provides an introduction to the issue, a description of how to inspect your citrus trees, and a description of how to report symptoms of the pest or disease, which can be found by clicking here. Additional information about HLB can be found here

For all questions or to request a free inspection, contact the California Department of Food and Agriculture hotline: 1-800-491-1899.
