Psyllids hard at work on a Fig tree

Seems the Fig trees at Tempe Reserve are not alone being affected by psyllids.  Large numbers of Eucalypts in the Mt Druitt/St Marys region are losing their leaves after an outbreak, with an Arborist saying that a number of psyllid-affected trees in Colyton Public School need to be removed.

Blacktown Council  & the University of Western Sydney have started a 12-month research project “to learn more about psyllids & the damage they cause.”

Grey box psyllid is affecting trees in Penrith, with many trees looking like they are dying.  The psyllid infestation has traveled as far as the Blue Mountains. &
