First reported in the United States in 1998 in Palm Beach County, the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) spread to thirty-one Florida counties within three years. ACP has been responsible for extensive damage to citrus orchards in Florida as well as China, India, and Brazil, by spreading, or vectoring, citrus greening disease— causing tree decline, reduced fruit production, sour fruit, and tree death. This publication contains valuable illustrations and guidelines for identification, as well as information on risk categories and integrated pest management in both commercial and noncommercial orchards.
