Apparently in So Calif there’s an Asian citrus psyllid attacking citrus trees.
They leave a bacteria that destroys the entire tree eventually. Since it’s a threat to the citrus industry, the Dept of Agriculture is taking out trees on people’s property if they find evidence of infestation. They came to my door and took samples of my trees. On Monday they doing treatment. Apparently my trees aren’t to the point of infestation but I’m in an affected area. Parts of OC and LA are mostly affected and in quarantine. It looks like most all of So Cal is quarantined.
I’m tellin’ ya I almost broke down and cried at the thought of them taking out my trees. They’re not just my privacy but their shade saves $$$ on my A/C bill, and of course the fruit.
So if you have citrus trees, check ‘em! http://californiacitrusthreat.org/pest-disease
