A Technical Report from The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories

Xylella fastidiosa is a xylem restricted bacterium transmitted by xylem-sap-feeding insects (specifically Hemiptera), however the actual vectors (disease carrying and transmitting agents) are not currently known to exist within the UK. Common vectors of other diseases are however present within the UK including aphids and leaf hoppers. These pests may in part feed on xylem sap and as such are likely to be able to transmit the Xylella bacterium.
