The disease is indeed a bacterial infection, not a virus- my mistake.

Subject: Citrus Greening Virus just confirmed in Southern California
Date: Fri, 30 Mar 2012 21:35:18 -0700










Some highlights from the California Department of Food and Agriculture
press release today:

The Citrus Greening Disease virus (Huanglongbing) has been detected in both
an Asian citrus psyllid sample and plant material from a lemon'pumello tree
in a residential neighborhood in Hacienda Heights area of Los Angeles
County. This is the first time the virus has been confirmed in California.

The citrus psyllid was discovered in 2008 in California, with citrus
quarantines in effect in Ventura, San Diego, Imperial, 
Orange, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Bernardino and Riverside 
counties. Residents of quarantine areas are urged not to remove or share 
citrus fruit, trees, clippings/grafts or related plant material. Citrus 
fruit may be harvested and consumed on-site. 

There is no cure for the virus which causes decline, and eventually kills
infected trees within a few years. This psyllid vector and the virus have
devastated the Florida citrus industry, and now both are found in Texas,
Louisiana, Georgia and South 
Carolina, with only the psyllid found in Arizona, Mississippi and Alabama. 

Officials are making arrangements to remove and dispose of the 
infected tree and conduct treatment of citrus trees within 800 meters of
 the find site. By taking these steps, a critical reservoir of disease 
and its vectors will be removed, which is essential. More information 
about the program will be provided at an informational open house 
scheduled for Thursday, April 5, at the Industry Hills Expo Center, The 
Avalon Room, 16200 Temple Avenue, City of Industry, from 5:30 to 7:00 
pm.
