How can we prevent the spread of HLB?
The appropriate time to look for symptoms of the presence of the vectors transmitting HLB is when there is budbreak, which covers almost the whole year (from the end of February to the beginning of May there is spring budbreak, between July and August, summer budbreak, and from September to the end of November the third budbreak or autumn budbreak).
Visual inspection would consist of selecting young shoots, looking for the presence of symptoms or the vectors themselves. The main symptoms of both psyllids are described below.
