Increasing Costs costing us the Battle against Psyllids

In this article from Ventura County we can see the battle against this insect is not going well to the north. It is likely that this will mean a continued spread of the Psyllid and the disease which it brings. It also seems from this piece that backyard citrus is to be sacrificed to save the commercial growers. This is happening because there just isn’t enough money to save the backyard trees. We will continue to monitor the fight against this insect and the dangers it poses here in Orange and Southern Los Angeles Counties. Let us all pray we can get a handle on this before there are no more oranges in Orange County.
