The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) confirmed the presence of the insect, Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) in areas of Fontana. Known as Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, it feeds on citrus plants and spread the disease huanglongbing (HLB), a devastating disease of citrus. Unless emergency action is taken to disrupt the ACP life cycle, there is high potential for sudden future detections in and around commercial citrus agriculture in San Bernardino County and other areas.
