  1. Dear Simon,

    Thanks for keeping this website really update with Eucalyptus invasive pest information and in particular their spread.
    I have information (email) from a Tobacco growing Company – Alliance One International, Inc, that Glycaspis brimblecombei has now been reported in Zimbabwe as of July 2014. Still moving northwards but still not in Kenya from my recent survey here.

    Kind Regards
