While it has not yet been found in Texas, people need to look for signs of CG to prevent it from getting a foothold in the state. This tip sheet contains images of the Asian Citrus Psyllid, the insect which is a vector of the bacterium that causes citrus greening.  It also shows photos of CG symptoms that may appear on leaves and branches of the tree and on its fruit.
