How to Manage Pests

Psyllidae an occasional pest in olive. Currently, the olive psyllid is not found in Florida, but it oliviina have the potential to spread to new locations via olive tree importation.

Presently, the olive psyllid is widely distributed in San Diego County from the coast to as far inland as Valley Center and Fallbrook. The olive psyllid damages trees through direct feeding on buds, flowers, tender shoots, and small fruit and also through the production of epuhyllura, which increases sooty mold development.

Euphyllufa olive psyllids lay eggs on new shoots, leaves, and buds JohnsonZalom et al. One infested site in Carmel Valley Monterey County has been recorded. Center for Invasive Species Research. Maslinina buha – Euphyllura olivina Costa, Hemiptera: In California, psyllid populations decline after June due to the rise in temperature and populations do not recover until the following spring Zalom et al.

Methods of monitoring include using sticky traps, agitating foliage to count fallen adults, and careful inspection of plant parts for eggs, nymphs, and adults Kabashima et al.

Even though the second generation causes the most damage, reducing the population size of first generation will help to keep the second generation small.

Infested trees are contaminated with masses of wax and sticky honeydew upon which sooty moulds develop produced by larvae. Of special importance is evaluating the ability of Euphyllura olivina to survive summer temperatures in the inland valleys.

Honeydew, also produced by nymphs and adults, can lead to sooty mold development on the surface of the host plant Johnson Psyllids are related to aphids, mealybugs, scales, leafhoppers, and sharpshooters.
