Tomato potato psyllid (Bactericera cockerelli) is an exotic plant pest which feeds on tomato, potato, capsicum, chilli, goji berry, tamarillo, eggplant as well as sweet potato, leading to loss of plant vigor and yield.

Commercial horticulture producers, particularly in regional areas, should continue to check for signs of the tomato potato psyllid (TPP). Report any suspect signs of the psyllid immediately to DAFWA through the MyPestGuide Reporter app and do not undertake any treatment or control.
