Xylella fastidiosa arrived in Europe six years ago, devastating olive groves in southern Italy and spreading to other countries in the EU, including parts of France and Spain.

Scientists need your help in trying to keep it at bay.

"There are a huge number of plants the Xylella bacterium could affect, from garden plants like the rosemary and lavender to the oak, said Dr Rebekah Robinson, senior plant pathologist at the Royal Horticultural Society."

What has this to do with Brexit?
The link sends me to a site I have to register at before I can see what's on it....that's gonna put folk off.....
It's just a BBC news page when I click on the link, Woof.

I had no idea that cuckoo spit could be so dangerous.
its the link to report cuckoo spit Tilly that is in the beeb report
I think its the bug that makes the spit that is important, that carries the xylella bug and injects it into the plants as it feeds
The red and black ones pictured do not produce spittle/foam.

The little green ones we have here do.
