This is only the tip of the ice berg.  There are at least a half dozen other
psillids, two weevils, and a long horned beetles now attacking eucs.   What
really needs to be done is for public officials to demand that the state and
feds do a better job checking for such introductions.  The problem came when
potted eucs were brought into CA and not quarantined, fumigated, or sprayed
(although the long horned beetle came in with logs).
Oh yeah, sorry I am not up on control methods, although I understand we have
them on our campus as well.
