Gardeners in Albany are encouraged to keep an eye out for Tomato Potato Psyllid (TPP)

Home gardeners in Albany are encouraged to keep an eye out for and control the insect pest, tomato potato psyllid (TPP), after an infestation in a backyard vegetable patch.

TPP is a tiny sap-sucking insect that affects a range of plants including tomato, potato, capsicum, chilli, eggplant and sweet potato but it can also inject a bacterium that can cause the potato disease Zebra Chip.

Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development chief plant biosecurity officer Sonya Broughton said that pest can be treated by common chemical and eco-friendly sprays.
