Eucalyptus Pests - Knowledgebase Question

I have a question regarding my eucalyptus trees. I have quite a few of them and have heard that a
bug of some sort is infecting them and killing these trees in California. It began to be noticed at the
San Diego Zoo and now has spread to my neighborhood. It looks like white sticky eggs have
attached themselves to the underside of the leaves. The Silverdollar eucalyptucs have not been
attacked, only the other type's (blue-gum etc). Have you heard anything in regards to this problem?
And have they found out what it is? My trees are starting to turn brown, I looked across the street
and all of my neighbors have gone completely brown. I'm very concerned that my trees could be
dying. thank you for any information you may have or can find on this problem.
