General advice includes non-fertilization and limited watering, which makes the trees less attractive to the psyllids and may save the trees until parasitoids can reduce pest numbers.

Falling leaves foul surfaces beneath infested trees such as vehicles parked under trees, and swimming pools, the bottoms of shoes are soiled when sticky leaves are walked on, and leaf drop results in the rapid accumulation of flammable material beneath trees and on the rooftops of houses and other buildings.

During a survey carried out in August 2013 along all coastal areas of north-eastern Tunisia (governorships of Bizerte, Ariana, Tunis, Ben Arous, Nabeul, Sousse), eucalyptus trees were found to be highly infested by the invasive pest Glycaspis brimblecombei Moore, 1964, also known as red gum lerp psyllid.
