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.”  http://bit.ly/Tt26XQ

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.  http://bit.ly/mRPO0B & http://bit.ly/PV7CMK
