Invasive insect threatens iconic Florida citrus

In this Wednesday, July 30, 2014 photo, a mural shows Marie and Hazel Kirch holding oranges in 1914, and the Orange Blossom Special train which brought passengers to Lake Wales in the 1920's, in downtown Lake Wales, Fla. Oranges and grapefruits have been farmed commercially in Florida since the 1800's. Florida's $9 billion citrus industry is facing its biggest threat yet by a tiny invasive bug called the Asian Citrus Psyllid, which carries bacteria that are left behind when the psyllid feeds on a citrus tree's leaves.
