Let’s Talk: Tomato Potato Psyllid

A known pest of the USA and Canada, and New Zealand as recently as 2006, the Tomato Potato Psyllid (TPP) has recently been found on the west coast of Australia.

TPP primarily feeds on potatoes, tomatoes and capsicums, but can be found on approximately 20 other plant families. Of these 20 families, TPP has a preference towards solanaceous crops (eggplants, tamarillos), solanaceous weeds (nightshade), sweet potatoes, and boxthorn.
